The Idealist Grad Fairs have been a longstanding staple in our strategic recruitment plan. The Fairs attract both a diverse range of prospective students and graduate programs that seek to marry their mission-driven commitments to serving the public good through promoting the value of advanced education in the attainment of professions of purpose.
