The ArtSci GradWell initiative was enacted by the Office of Grad Studies for Arts & Sciences, student affairs team, in 2022, and looks to encompass a truly holistic approach to supporting graduate student well-being in Arts & Sciences. Programming and support ranges from monthly social and community-building gatherings to financial literacy and career and professional development, to mindfulness-based stress reduction work, and more.
The overall health and well-being of our graduate students in Arts & Sciences are of paramount importance to us. ArtSci GradWell, other university partners, and grad students themselves provide a number of services and opportunities to help our students be well in all aspects of their lives. We believe the goal should not be to ‘survive’ graduate school, but to ‘thrive’.
