This year, the National Center for Institutitonal Diversity (NCID) created the Emerging Diversity Scholars Network (EDSN), a professional development network for graduate students who have demonstrated a commitment or have contributed to diversity research and scholarship. The EDSN aims to provide graduate students with exposure to a variety of professional development tools, skills, and networks, to enhance their abilities to make impacts in their scholarship and practice. At this time, the network is available to University of Michigan graduate students in good academic standing

The sign-up form is currently closed. Please check back on the EDSN page in fall 2018 for application information.
