Office for Diversity in Graduate Education

 

The Office for Diversity in Graduate Education (ODGE) is a unit within the Office for Equity and Diversity.  ODGE leads and coordinates the University’s initiatives in the recruitment, funding, retention and graduation of a diverse graduate and professional student body. The primary retention initiative within ODGE is the Community of Scholars Program (COSP) which assists graduate students of color (US citizens and permanent residents) to more fully participate in the University; develop supportive relationships with advisors and mentors; build a sense of community through academic seminars and professional development workshops; and connect students to the Twin Cities and broader U of MN system through teaching, research and community engagement opportunities.
