Georgia State is part of the national conversation on undergraduate recruitment into the humanities. Dr. Denise Davidson (Professor, History Department) highlighted the CASA’s Humanities Inclusivity Program (HIP) at a spring 2021 virtual meeting of the National Humanities Alliance in a session entitled Fostering Inclusive Community and Supporting Underrepresented Students.
Faculty and instructional staff members are the main conduit of information from the university to our target audience: students and alumni. Join our mission by making advanced degree programs part of your discussions with our undergraduate students, using some of the strategies below.
• Inspire students to consider advanced degrees: Mention advanced degree programs in class and highlight individuals from various backgrounds who have advanced degrees in your fields.
• Share news about the CASA: Invite CASA leaders and ambassadors to visit your classes or clubs.
• Use the CASA Nomination Platform: Seek out students with high potential to move into professional positions by way of law school, medical school, or PhD programs.
At present, as few as 5% of our alumni proceed into JD, MD, or PhD programs. We can raise the numbers and continue the upward trajectory of Georgia State alumni.
