Rackham Graduate School Offers New Certificate Program for Developing Student DEI Skills

As a central part of its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Strategic Plan, the Rackham Graduate School now offers a graduate student DEI Professional Development Certificate that is designed to prepare students to work in a diverse environment while fostering a climate of inclusiveness. The program, which was designed in response to student feedback, recognizes a relatively new and rapidly growing movement among employers, both within and outside of the academy, to require job applicants to demonstrate a commitment to diversity.

Data and the Graduate School Experience

Chances are you haven’t had much interaction with Rackham Institutional Research. We are typically behind the scenes trying to make sense of numbers and figuring out how to best communicate those numbers with our community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. But you may have taken part in one of our surveys, the Current Student Survey, or if you’re close to graduating you might have participated in the Exit Survey.

Within all these data, there are important stories that contextualize and frame our understanding of the numbers that come across our desks. While we don’t always understand every complexity, we love to learn. And we are striving to learn more.
