Partner Organizations


A diverse student body starts with a diverse applicant pool. At LGS, we are making a determined effort to increase diversity among our applicants by partnering with diversity-focused organizations to help us identify and connect with prospects from underrepresented groups.  

Additionally, on our own or in partnership with other LGS or Emory units, we attend a large number of regional and national events and conferences with recruiting components throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Below is a partial list.
