Diversity Initiatives

Woman standingVanderbilt University's Office for Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education (VU-EDGE) efforts are based on the University's sincere desire to provide underrepresented students with access to the tools necessary to reach their professional goals while creating a diverse learning community for all of our students. We believe that the next generation of scholars and leaders must reflect the gender and racial composition of the country. To that end, we aggressively recruit, admit, and support underrepresented students both for the benefits our University can give them and for the benefits, both intellectual and social, that they bring to our campus.

Our office is directed by Assistant Dean Don Brunson who is supported by an advisory council composed of faculty members from around campus.
