Annual Conference March 31 - April 1, 2023

The “Annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education” finds its origins in our treasured collaboration with Howard University. It has become a dynamic and increasingly recognized academic conference, drawing New Haven community residents, scholars, administrators, and graduate and undergraduate students from across the nation.

Yale, the first institution in the country to award graduate degrees, is Dr. Edward A. Bouchet’s alma mater. Dr. Bouchet is the first self-identified Black American to earn a Ph.D. from an American university and the 6th person in the Western Hemisphere to be awarded the Ph.D. in physics.

Whether you are engaged in research, teaching, or any of the many facets of administration, this conference is for you! We invite you to participate in vigorous discussions on diversity in graduate education and ongoing research across disciplines in universities located in all parts of the Nation. You will not want to miss this extraordinary opportunity to network with graduate and undergraduate students, faculty, and administrators from across the country on March 31 – April 1, 2023 at the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences campus.

Save the date, register, and bring along a colleague! This distinguished event is sure to be engaging, enlightening, and empowering.
