DivE In Weekend
Fall 2023, Philadelphia
University of Pennsylvania
About DivE In Weekend
The University of Pennsylvania is holding its third annual diversity preview weekend in Fall 2023. 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, in the Fall of 2023. The event will feature various presentations, workshops and panels designed to prepare students for success in graduate school. Full event schedule will be posted closer to the event start date.
Applications for the 2023 cycle will open in Spring 2023. In the meantime, please see our Resources tab for helpful information and resources from past DivE In cycles.
