The University of California, Davis values a diversity of viewpoints, backgrounds and experiences among its graduate student population. The Neuroscience graduate group encourages diversity in the application and recruitment process by participating in programs to improve graduate diversity, including our own Neuroscience Initiative to Enhance Diversity (NIED) program as well as the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) training grant, University of California Office of the President Historically Black Colleges and Universities Initiative, and the College of Biological Sciences Strategic Student Recruitment Plan. Our admission criteria also include each candidate’s potential for leadership in the university mission for diversity.
