Mitigating the Caregiving Burden among Graduate Students: Policies, Programs and Practices

An NSF-funded CGS RAPID project and the CGS project on graduate student mental health have both underscored the need to better understand the challenges and impacts of caregiving on graduate students' progress toward degree completion. In this webinar, three graduate deans will discuss how their institutions have codified accommodations and support for graduate students with various caregiving responsibilities. Panelists will also discuss how their respective institutions are making financial and other resources available to help students find a healthy balance between continuing their graduate studies and supporting their loved ones.
