Advocacy Events

graduate students enjoy a breakfast meeting with the dean of the graduate school

New for 2020, our Advocacy events are opportunities for our graduate and professional students to investigate and connect with the issues facing graduate and professional students on a deeper, more personal level, encouraging their personal and professional growth. Our initial events will focus on the initiatives brought forth by the GPSS President, and will further work to support the activities of Special Committees of the General Assembly.

We welcome your ideas for new and exciting events to be held this year! We also gladly welcome other student-serving organizations to join us in creating events that serve our communities.

All event dates and times  will be announced on this page, and on our Facebook page, our Twitter account, and through the weekly Graduate School listserv email.

Example Volunteer opportunities: create, analyze, and report on surveys sent to our constituency, assist in the development and scheduling of events, welcome participants to the sessions, tear down at the end of the event.

Questions? Please email the Director of Events from your VT email address.
