PROJECTS

Applicant Development

The ASCO/AOA Joint Project Team “Develop a Robust, Diverse, and Highly Qualified National Applicant Pool for the Doctor of Optometry Programs” will use research findings and creative concepts to help launch a national campaign intended to increase the quantity, quality and diversity of applicants to the Schools and Colleges of Optometry.

Diversity Initiative

The Diversity Mini-Grants are designed to provide funding to the schools/colleges of optometry to increase and enhance student and faculty diversity. This program assists optometry schools in developing and implementing activities and programs that are designed to recruit and/or retain underrepresented minority students, financially disadvantaged, and first generation college students into optometry.

Marketing Graduate Education

O.D.-Ph.D. faculty will be identified to serve as graduate school recruiters to speak to first year students at every school or college. To support this program, a standardized module will be developed that will be available as an online learning object.
