Health Professional School Expo

UMN RecWell Center – 4th Floor (MAC)
The Health Professional School Expo will bring over 40 health professional schools from around the country to campus to network with students.

​A full listing of schools and programs will be available in the Health Professional School Expo mobile guide, in the U Minnesota app, which will go live early next week. ​The guide will also include some questions to help students prepare for the event, no matter where you are at in the exploration or preparation process.
The HPSE is sponsored by the UMN Pre-Health Student Resource Center and the Interprofessional Pre-Health Students organization.
Get reminders by following the Facebook event page, or following us on Twitter @umnprehealth.  We’re talking about the event on social media using #umnhealthexpo.

HECUA – Race in America

 HECUA is able to offer eleven ($1000) scholarships for our Race in America students specifically. Eight of the eleven will be set aside for Racial Justice Scholarships and three will be offered as Social Justice Scholarships. These scholarship applications will also be due April 15th, same day as the program application deadline.
Racial Justice Eligibility:
  • Applicant must be student of color.
  • Applicant must be currently enrolled in one of HECUA’s member colleges/universities.
  • Applicant must have a completed program application on file
Social Justice Eligibility:
  • Applicant must be a first-generation college student, a student from a low-income family (family’s taxable income for the preceding year did not exceed 150 percent of the poverty level amount), or a student of color.
  • Applicant must be currently enrolled in one of HECUA’s member colleges/universities.
  • Applicant must have a completed program application on file
Race in America: Then and Now is a 4 credit program that takes place during the month of June (21 day program). Students explore questions of racial justice in America today, and the continuing role of race in the United States. Students gain this perspective by meeting with both civil rights activists who were active in the 1960s and those who are active now, as well as lawyers, politicians, educators and youth. Field experiences open up connections among issues related to education, incarceration, distribution of wealth, health care, housing, employment, and the environment. By the end of the month, students have a profound understanding of the Civil Rights Movement and its motivations, strategies, successes and failures. They have also developed ways to make meaningful contributions to their own communities.
The program is based in Jackson, Mississippi, and is offered in collaboration with the Fannie Lou Hamer National Institute on Citizenship and Democracy at COFO on the campus of Jackson State University, one of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). From Jackson, students travel throughout Louisiana (New Orleans, Wallace), Alabama (including Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham), Tennessee (Memphis, Nashville), visiting historical sites and meeting with many important figures along the way. The total program cost for summer 2018 is $3,600.

Program Information

University of Minnesota Department of Educational Psychology within the College of Education and Human Development.

What do board certified behavior analysts do? Board certified behavior analysts (BCBAs) work with people with disabilities—such as autism spectrum disorder and developmental disabilities—to recognize and analyze problem behaviors and recommend actions to improve their day-to-day lives.

Why become a board certified behavior analyst? 11.2% of people in Minnesota and 13.1% of people in the United State are living with some kind of disability according to the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development. That’s approximately one in every ten people. The M.A. in special education with an emphasis applied behavior analysis (A.B.A.), prepares graduate students to meet this growing need by becoming a BCBA.

Why applied behavior analysis at the University of Minnesota? We’re looking for psychology and education majors and those interested in applied research who want to make a difference in the world around them, and we’re partial to Gophers. The program is pending Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) board approval and is designed to meet the requirements for national board certification in applied behavior analysis. Graduates will be prepared to sit for the certification exam.

“Thank a Teacher” Project

The Center for Educational Innovation is a program that helps students express their gratitude to professors, instructors or TAs who have made a difference in their education.

We call it the “Thank a Teacher” project and it’s easy. Students go to the website, write a note of thanks and we take it from there. Students can say what they like and choose to be anonymous, if they prefer. All notes are reviewed before being printed and sent to instructors.

The Thank a Teacher project is a great way for students to express their gratitude for their instruction, and teachers at the University really appreciate hearing these unsolicited comments. The project has been around since around 1998.

Technical and Professional Writing Club


Do you want to improve your technical, professional, and non-fiction writing skills?

This could include:

  • scholarship essays
  • letters of intent/personal statements
  • grants and proposals
  • journal and news articles
  • press releases
  • persuasive articles
  • or any other informative or non-fictitious writings

Technical and professional writing is on the rise in almost all career paths! Why not find another way to improve this valuable skill?

My name is Shane, and I would like to form a Technical and Professional Writing Club. The hope is that this club would be primarily student organized and run. I have many ideas for the club including guest speakers, peer review sessions, and student workshops, but I can’t do this alone! This club would be open to all majors, and students at any academic level would be welcome.

There would be other benefits to assisting in the organization of this group as well. Besides becoming a better writer, you could also refine your leadership abilities. Defined and exhibited leadership skills are in high demand for many routes a student may pursue during and after college—whether it is grad school, an internship, or your first job. Why not add your experience and knowledge in the formation of this club? Also, it would look great on a resume or CV!

I encourage anyone interested to email me at rosex607@umn.edu if they would like more information, provide suggestions, or commit to helping form this club!
Thank you
