GPAS Outreach Request Form - for departments/programs/organizations serving graduate students and postdocs
Graduate and Postdoc Academic Success Program
The Graduate & Postdoc Academic Success (GPAS)
program provides the critical infrastructure and support for College/School leadership, departments/programs, and faculty to assist their students and postdocs in reaching their academic goals. We do this through direct outreach to departments and faculty, responsive programming and workshops, and direct support of students and postdocs in alignment with their development as the next generation of scholars and leaders. In addition to tailored and responsive programming to support departments, graduate student, and postdoc needs, we offer individual success planning sessions which include conversations around progress, productivity and navigating academic relationships.
