Candid Conversations with Minority Scholars

The most enlightening way to get information about an area or institution is to have a candid conversation with a local resident or employee. RAP maintains a list of minority scholars who are willing to talk confidentiality with candidates and new hires about life in Minnesota and at the University of Minnesota. If you are interested in speaking with someone on this list, contact the Relocation Assistance Program.
