The Office of Educational Opportunity and Diversity Programs (OEODP) serves the City University of New York by recruiting students from underrepresented groups for its doctoral programs and administering its fellowships and awards program at the Graduate Center.
In the following pages, you will find out more about our support services, which have been specifically designed to provide academic, social, and financial support to underrepresented doctoral scholars.
Through the CUNY Pipeline Program for Careers in College Teaching and Research, undergraduate students, under the supervision of a faculty research mentor, are able to develop research skills in their chosen discipline in preparation for doctoral study and careers in the professoriate.
Thus, by reaching out across the University, as well as nationally, and providing opportunities for individuals from undergraduate through postdoctoral status, OEODP promotes access and excellence through diversity.
CUNY doctoral students are an integral part of the OEODP community. Financial and support services at OEODP exist in order to assist students with various aspects of their graduate school experience.
