Mission Statement and Purpose​
The graduate student relations committee is focused on advocating for graduate students' needs at the 17 UNC system schools and to better connect students to resources needed to be successful in graduate school.

Graduate & Professional Student Affairs Committee

2020-21 Platform

Graduate student mental health

Our committee wants to improve accessibility to mental health resources for graduate students, so we are making this website a one-stop-shop for any and all mental health and wellness resources.

Visibility

We want to improve visibility for graduate students by giving their voice a platform to enact positive change at their institution.

Building Connections

This committee is improving graduate student networking and communication between graduate student government groups to help foster new connections and collaborations between the UNC system schools.
