Minority Scholars' Symposium
News and Events
The Minority Scholars' Symposium, held each fall, is a one-day program for high school juniors from Dallas ISD and Richardson ISD. The students visit UT Dallas to learn more about the University and the importance of pursuing a college education. The students interact with UT Dallas students, faculty and staff.
The symposium targets 200 high school juniors from seven local high schools in collaboration with the Office of Enrollment Services and the Academic Bridge Program. The goal of this one-day college preview program is to increase the enrollment of diverse students at the University. Students participate in an admissions committee exercise, tour the university, and meet with current faculty and students.
