Additionally, the association aims to accomplish these goals through the following:
    • Bringing students together from diverse programs and backgrounds for networking, discussion, and collaboration
    • Building relationships with university faculty and administration
    • Representing graduate students on university committees and student government organizations
    • Organizing and supporting events and initiatives of interest to the broader graduate student population

  • Graduate Student and Advisor Checklist

    Your relationship with your major advisor is an important part of your graduate experience. This potentially enduring partnership can help to demystify the graduate school process, provide an opportunity for professional growth, and help to foster networking. Your advisor is critical to your progress in the program and your eventual graduation success. Students who reported being most satisfied with their mentoring relationship indicated having regular meetings with their advisors and an ability to communicate openly. The “Graduate Student and Advisor Checklist” is one way to began this dialogue. View the Graduate Student and Advisor Checklist.
