Getting Through Grad School with Grace & Grit: The Online Support Group

We recognize that graduate students face ongoing challenges, due to both the grad school experience itself and the impact of the pandemic on one’s life and studies. The stress and uncertainty at this time can feel isolating and overwhelming, and maintaining a sense of community is more important than ever. This support group is a nonjudgmental online community where graduate students come together in solidarity to discuss what matters most to them, support each other, and apply grace and grit to succeed in their current challenges.
