The Office of Diversity & Inclusion offers students several opportunities
to develop students leadership potential. These opportunities are listed below.
SUMMER PRE-MATRICULATION PROGRAM
The Pre-Matriculation Program (PMP) is an intensive four week program
coordinated by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Enrollment is prioritized
for African American, Latino, and Native American students who have been
offered admission. The goal of PMP is to strengthen the academic, professional,
and social skills of new students as they enter graduate school. PMP curricula
and competencies will be delivered in modules, and will be supplemented
by professional development and SPH orientation services. Participating students
will receive a stipend that will be distributed as modules are satisfactorily completed.
