Community of Scholars - Spring Campus Visit Program & Symposium

Community of Scholars

The Graduate College recognizes that talented students have many graduate school options from which to choose. We also know the importance to the University of Illinois of enrolling diverse graduate student talent in our graduate programs and, in turn, understand how critical it is for a prospective student to see themselves as a valued member of our campus community.

Among the many opportunities offered by the Graduate College to support our graduate programs’ efforts to attract and enroll prospective graduate students from underrepresented populations is the Community of Scholars Campus (COS) visit. COS is designed to introduce newly admitted graduate students to the University of Illinois campus, their prospective graduate programs, and the many resources available to them while a student on our campus. 

This Community of Scholars Campus Visit Program and Symposium will take place March 3-4, 2023.
