Graduate Student Orientation - Diversity Graduate Students

Graduate Diversity Orientation Program
 

The Graduate Diversity Orientation Program (GDOP) focuses on diversity issues in higher education and success in graduate school.  GDOP engages students committed to diversity, with issues they may experience in their first year and the changing demographics at UC Davis, in California, and in the U.S.

Through skill building workshops, interactive panels, and networking with diversity peers, faculty and staff, the GDOP prepares students to successfully navigate graduate school in their first year, balancing their commitments while becoming themselves resources and advocates for a diverse and inclusive campus community.   

All students are invited to attend GDOP, particularly new students who are first generation, former foster youth, from underserved populations and underrepresented communities and others committed to increasing diversity in higher education.

For more information about the Graduate Diversity Orientation Program, contact Josephine Moreno, Diversity Officer for the Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, and Education Graduate Programs and Steve Lee, Diversity Officer for the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Graduate Programs.
