Building Community

The Graduate School provides historically underrepresented student groups of color, as well as students from a host of different backgrounds including ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and religion, support in developing and managing various events, both those that are academic as well as those that help foster a sense of community. The programming events include but are not limited to those relevant to research, professional development, and retention of students as the progress through their individual programs. The student organizations are also an active body in the recruitment process for prospective students as The Graduate School continue to extend its reach and expand the pipeline for students of color interested in participating in the highest level of research and teaching. Below is a lst of student organizations that support these various communities.
