The second annual Ivy Plus Symposium: Advancing Diversity in Higher Education will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts on March 13-15, 2014. Co-hosted by MIT and Harvard University, the Ivy Plus Symposium is designed to explore ways to enhance student diversity at the graduate level as a step toward enhancing diversity in the faculty and at every level of the academy and beyond. Students will have the opportunity to interact with faculty and graduate students, present their work, and learn about cutting-edge research. Attendance is open to students from all fields (not just STEM disciplines), and the application deadline for students is December 7, 2013. To apply, students need to submit their contact and academic information, supporting documentation (a personal statement, a CV or resume, and a copy of their undergraduate transcript), and two letters of reference.
