󰁇raduate students will not be considered unless their statements and work directly address these concerns. Examples of a commitment to a social agenda:
• Work that clearly demonstrates positive social change. • Work that addresses identity politics (i.e., cultural, ethnic, sexual or gender identity) • Demonstration of a clear career path (not just “I hope...”), such as to teach, mentor, work with young people, serve your community, etc.
