The Graduate Resource Center provides academic support, professional networking, and community building opportunities in a space dedicated to graduate students. We guide students through writing, editing, and formatting the thesis and dissertation and assist in preparing their work for publication; host workshops and presentations to support students’ academic and professional development; and act as a general resource for graduate student needs. We strive to arm graduate students with the tools required in the next steps of their academic and professional journeys.
