About DivE In Weekend
The University of Pennsylvania is holding its first ever annual diversity preview weekend in Fall 2021. DivE In stands for the Diversity and Equity Initiative. There are three main targets we hope to improve upon by holding this event.
Diversity in Mind Research
We seek to improve diversity in the fields that are related to the study of the mind, such as psychology, neuroscience, biology, linguistics, sociology, and more.
Diversity at University of Pennsylvania
The graduate body of Penn mindCORE-affiliated departments is lacking in diversity relative to the greater Philadelphia area. We strive to improve this discrepancy by making this outreach.
Fill in Mentorship Gaps
Under-represented minority students are more likely to face gaps in mentorship during higher education. A major purpose of our event is to minimize this gap as much as possible.
The DivE In Weekend will take place over the course of a 3-day weekend, on October 8 – 10, 2021. The event will feature various presentations, workshops and panels designed to prepare students for success in graduate school. Please note that our current schedule is tentative.
The application for the DivE In Weekend is now closed as of June 15, 2021. Decisions have been mailed out to all applicants who applied.
