Graduate & Professional Opportunities Program, a student support program, seeks to
prepare, motivate, and support students who plan to pursue graduate and professional
studies upon graduating from the University. The Program targets students during
their freshman year and supports them throughout their matriculation. A primary goal is to equip students with the tools necessary to make informed decisions about
opportunities for educational advancement.
The Program supports students through a
variety of services, including its annual Graduate & Professional School Fair;
Graduate School and Personal Statement Workshops; Campus Visitation Programs; Standardized
Test Preparation Programs; Informational Forums in Law, Medicine, Business, and Graduate
Studies; and provides academic counseling. The Program also houses a reference center
of information on graduate and professional degree programs, as well as fellowships and
scholarships for advanced study. The Program functions as a unit within the
Career Development Center works closely with various departments at the University.
