Diversity is true to our heart at SIPA. In SIPA’s two-year programs, 59% are women and 41% are men. Over 26% self-identified themselves as students of color and half are international students. In all, SIPA has a diverse student population when viewed through the lens of international and women students. We have stayed relatively consistent over the past few years in attracting domestic applicants who identified themselves as persons of color. However, our goal is to continue to strengthen our diverse student profile.
The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid is hosting our 2nd Annual Diversity Symposium on December 13th (tomorrow). Prospective graduate students are invited to attend to learn more about SIPA’s Master of Public Administration (MPA) and Master of International Affairs (MIA) degree programs. This will also be an opportunity for participants to discuss issues of diversity and representation in highly sought-after graduate programs like ours. The symposium will highlight SIPA’s mission to develop world class leaders who are committed to solving problems in a rapidly changing world.
Faculty, current SIPA students, SIPA alumni and prospective students will gather to discuss and expand on opportunities for new, innovative and dynamic leadership in international and domestic policies.
Seats are limited. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP or contact the Admissions Office at 212-854.6216.
