Leadership Development


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. For more information, click here.
