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 program's goal 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 Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, ACE seeks to increase access and success for underrepresented students in preparing them for graduate school.
