Graduate Programs


The David T. Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity offers several programs for Arts, Sciences and Engineering (AS&E) graduate students. These programs are an integral part of the center’s mission to grow the academic pipeline and diversify the academy in AS&E.

We offer professional and social programming on topics addressing the racial and ethnic diversity of the University graduate student population.
