  • Purpose

    The Office of ROPE serves to maintain and strengthen the number of qualified applicants from underrepresented and underserved areas who may successfully apply, enter and complete health professional schools.

    The office also provides a health careers pipeline for underrepresented, underserved students to stimulate interest in pursuing health careers and to implement programming designed to increase the academic preparation of students.

    ROPE works in collaboration with other student services and academic units on campus to promote academic achievement and to increase the retention of matriculating underrepresented, underserved students. The division works with individual students, student groups, staff and faculty to design and implement strategies that support students and increase opportunities for academic and professional success.
