Graduate student nominees must be enrolled in a master’s program or graduate certificate at the time of nomination. From these nominations, a committee will select recipients for this calendar year. All nominees have been notified and the winners of the award will be announced during the Graduate Studies Reception during Graduate Week.

The Grad-itude Project

Did you know that individuals who express gratitude on a regular basis have higher levels of optimism, physical well-being, and determination? We recognize that these are essential qualities for graduate students. In celebration of Graduate Studies Week 2022 join the Division of Graduate Studies in expressing gratitude to students, faculty, staff, family and friends. Stop by and pick up a postcard.  Drop a line to a person in your life who has made a difference and send a message of gratitude.
