UMD IRT Graduate Student Community

UMD IRT Graduate Student Community History 

The Graduate School at University of Maryland has participated in the Institute for Recruitment of Teachers (IRT) Consortium of Colleges & Universities for over 15 years and has attracted IRT students to graduate programs at UMD since 1993.  The Office of Graduate Diversity and Inclusion (OGDI) not only recruits talented IRT students to graduate programs at UMD, but also provides monthly sessions especially designed for IRT graduate students to ensure their success once they are here.  Monthly sessions include enrichment & community activities, professional & career development, holistic support around self-care, wellness & mindfulness, and invited guest speakers.  IRT Graduate Student Community signature events include the Annual IRT Alumni Holiday Dinner in December and the Annual End of Year Celebration in May.
