Future Graduate & Professional Student Resources
In support of the University's Diversity Action Plan, Office of Diversity and Inclusion Administration/Special Programs unit is committed to the diversification of The Ohio State University’s student body. This unit is a year-round resource to prospective graduate and professional students offering specific responses to a myriad of inquiry. Through each of the programs listed below, the office also collaborates with the OSU graduate and professional community to introduce academic opportunities to students who will contribute to the academic and cultural diversity of the University.
Graduate/Professional Student Recruitment Initiative (GPS)
A two-day University-wide recruitment effort scheduled for October 9 - 11, 2011. The main goal of GPS is to give prospective graduate and professional students an opportunity to visit OSU and get an intimate view of its graduate and professional degree programs.
