The Office of University Diversity Initiatives works to provide opportunities specifically for Cabrini’s multicultural population. Through community collaboration, UDI is able to offer several opportunities including those listed below.
PCOM-Collaboration Agreement: African American and Latino Male Summer Research Fellowship
With its' first cohort of three students beginning in Summer 2019, this collaboration was created by both Chief Diversity Officers at each institution to help increase African-American and Latino male involvement in the Sciences. A selected group of male students from Cabrini will spend 8-10 weeks working with PCOM Faculty developing their projects and research. This Fellowship will expose students to methodologies, research techniques, analysis, and technical writing. Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to co-author and present research along with PCOM Faculty. Those who complete their Summer Research Fellowship will also receive a stipend.
PCOM-Articulation Agreement: Master of Psychology Program
This agreement was created by both Chief Diversity Officers and respective faculty members at both institutions in order to help increase Students of Color receiving their Master of Psychology.
PCOM-Articulation Agreement: Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
This agreement was created by both Chief Diversity Officers and respective faculty members at both institutions in order to help increase Students of Color receiving their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine.
Men of Color Learning Community
The Men of Color Leadership Academy at Cabrini University offers a safe and brave community for Men of Color who will create their own definition of success, develop life skills, articulate their leadership philosophy, and foster a culture of academic achievement. Each cohort has interactions with professional Men of Color in both academia as well as industry who will help with professional networking and potential opportunities for internships, research, and employment. Additionally, this community is designed to have these young men truly feel as though they are a part of the Cabrini community.
