Academic Community of Excellence

The Academic Community of Excellence prepares underrepresented students (as defined by the U.S. Department of Education) and other students of color to pursue graduate and professional school. The goal of the program is to increase the representation of students of color in advanced degree programs and diversify our nation’s professional sectors.

As a strategic initiative of the Office of Intercultural Affairs, ACE is driven by the principles of inclusive excellence, access and equity, and student success.
