Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity in the Graduate School
The Graduate School recognizes the benefits of a culturally diverse campus. Different backgrounds bring different perspectives and allows for a richer community to facilitate collaboration, cooperation and different approaches. Michigan Tech's community has representation of over 60 nationalities as well as students coming from all over the United States. See the scholarship opportunities available below to recruit and assist talented underrepresented students to the pool of graduate students at Michigan Tech and learn about the CommUNITY campaign. Together we are stronger.
