This is a two-part workshop for CMU community members that covers the fundamentals and strategies for equity-based holistic admissions. These research-based workshops foster reflection, healthy discussion, and practical strategies to advance equity and inclusion in graduate education.

Intended workshop outcomes:

  • Understand current data and research about typical admissions criteria and practices that maintain racial/ethnic inequalities in graduate education.
  • Articulate and assess your graduate admissions practices.
  • Develop or refine an evaluation rubric.
  • Engage in discussions that will help anticipate common challenges that may arise in adopting holistic review

For more information on the workshops please visit the Equity in Graduate Education Resource Center website.


The first workshop will cover fundamentals and the second will cover strategies. You must attend the first workshop in order to attend the second. Please register before March 8.
