This grant provides support for the Equity in Graduate Education Consortium, led by Dr. Julie Posselt at the University of Southern California’s Pullias Center for Higher Education. The Consortium brings together change-ready universities, graduate programs, and leaders to align policies and practices with commitments to equity and inclusion. Building off the successful California Consortium for Inclusive Doctoral Education (C-CIDE),  grant funds will allow Posselt’s team to develop a tiered membership model for the expanded consortium; host activities, including a workshop series and training for campus-based facilitators; create new modules, curricula, and facilitation guides; develop a framework for enacting systemic change in graduate education; and work with their new and existing institutional partners to create equity action plans tailored to the needs and circumstances of each university. In addition to other public and private universities, participating campuses include Sloan’s University Centers of Exemplary Mentoring institutions.
