The UF Office of Graduate Minority Programs spearheads the UF Graduate School’s contribution to campus diversity by working for the recruitment, retention and graduation of minority and underrepresented students in master’s degree and doctoral degree programs.
It has a two-fold mission:
Increasing the number of graduate students from underrepresented ethnic or racial groups: African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native Alaskans (Aleuts and Eskimos), Native Americans and Native Pacific Islanders.
Providing prospective and enrolled graduate students in underrepresented demographic groups with material aid and mentoring to help in their successful pursuit of a graduate school education.
It accomplishes this mission through a variety of programs, services and support initiatives, including:
- Andres Andrade
- Kahlil Bond
- Henry Smith
