Faculty Holistic Review Workshop for Graduate Admissions

Monday, August 19, 2019 at 10:00am to 3:00pm

Date: August 19, 2019

Time: 10am-3pm

Location: 401 Warren Hall

Holistic review is an evidence-based practice for identifying talent and increasing diversity. In this workshop, led by nationally recognized experts Drs. Julie Posselt and Casey Miller, participants will learn the research basis for holistic review and practical applications to graduate admissions. Participants will come away with tools and resources to support implementation of holistic admissions in their programs. The session is interactive and designed to encourage conversation among faculty and staff responsible for selecting new students; therefore, small groups from graduate fields are encouraged to register together.

Miller, Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Affairs and Professor in the College of Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and nationally recognized expert in methods for transforming recruitment, admissions, and retention to increase the access and inclusion in STEM for underrepresented groups
