Holistic review is an evidence-based practice for identifying talent and increasing diversity. In this workshop, led by nationally recognized experts Drs. Julie Posselt and Casey Miller, participants will learn the research basis for holistic review  and practical applications to graduate admissions. Participants will come away with tools and resources to support implementation of holistic admissions in their programs. The session is interactive and designed to encourage conversation among faculty and staff responsible for selecting new students; therefore, small groups from graduate fields are encouraged to register together.
