New: Equitable Admissions for Black Applicants (EABA)
The Integrated Science Program (iSci) within the School of Interdisciplinary Science (SIS) strives to be an accessible, supportive, and inclusive community. As part of our efforts to acknowledge and minimize systemic and structural barriers in the program, we have introduced an Equitable Admissions for Black Applicants (EABA) process for our Level 1 applicants as part of the mandatory supplementary application. The purposes of this process are to reduce barriers that might discourage Black-identifying applicants from applying to the iSci program, and to mitigate the potential for unconscious bias to influence evaluation of supplementary applications.
The EABA is open to applicants who self-identify as Black (including Black African, Black Caribbean/West Indian, Black North American, Black/Afro-Latinx, multi-racial students who have Black ancestry that they identify with, and other Black identities).
This is an optional application stream for Black applicants.
