Graduate Student Opportunities
Graduate Student Resource Bank
The Graduate Student Knowledgebase created the Graduate Student Resource Bank (GSRB) to understand graduate student needs, to connect graduate to resources and services, and to advocate for their well-being and success. The GSRB as a whole works to form partnerships and other collaborative relationships on campus to connect students with resources and services, to develop programs and workshops to address unmet needs that help graduate students reach their academic and professional goals.
