Graduate Student Appreciation Week

Graduate Student Appreciation Week

Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. The week seeks to emphasize the contributions, impact and value of graduate and professional students on campuses throughout the United States.



This year's Graduate Student Appreciation Week will take place from April 1 - 5, 2024. 

Stay tuned as we announce more details about this year's events in the coming weeks!
