GU2IU is a pre-application campus visit for underrepresented minority students, underwritten by the President’s Diversity Initiative and coordinated by The University Graduate School. Using the IU AGEP recruitment model, funded by the National Science Foundation, the University Graduate School identifies programs that prepare underrepresented students for doctoral studies. Prospective applicants are invited to apply to the pre-application, fully-funded, early fall campus visit. This year's event took place October 10th-12th, and hosted 21 students.
