A Safe, Welcoming and Supportive Environment for Graduate Study
We encourage students to investigate the academic and social climate in which they will be working, and recognize that recent allegations raised in the press and elsewhere may raise concerns about choosing the University of Rochester for your graduate studies. The University is deeply committed to providing a safe, inclusive and supportive learning environment for graduate students. We are taking steps to further strengthen that commitment.
- The CARE network—our nationally recognized program for confidentially receiving help with almost any academic, emotional, physical or social concern—now serves all graduate and post-baccalaureate students as well as University undergraduates.
- Our Ombudsperson Program for graduate students and postdoctoral appointees adds a layer of confidential and independent support for discussing any concern and also for reporting inappropriate behavior.
- The Office for Inclusion and Culture Development promotes diversity and is tasked with ensuring that policies and practices to support learners are clear, consistent, and communicated effectively across all medical center education programs.
Our goal is to provide a first-class research and training environment in which faculty, learners and staff are united by mutual respect and the love of science. Find more University resources and information on this website or talk to your program coordinator if you have questions.
