GSAS Student Organizations

In addition to the environment that ODEO fosters for interaction among diverse students within the Graduate School, there are a number of cultural centers and student organizations that bring together students of specific ethnicities, genders and other underrepresented experiences (see side panel).

Furthermore, the Afro American Cultural Center, Asian-American Cultural Center, La Casa Cultural, and the Native American Cultural Center sponsor scholarly lectures, social events, dinners and excursions that put diverse groups of students in touch with each other, introduce them to Yale’s vast array of intellectual resources, facilitate the sharing of research and provide informal mentoring. Students may also benefit from events sponsored by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies Program at Yale, the Women Faculty Forum, the Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, Women in Science at Yale, and the Office for Women in Medicine.
