Campus Partners


The GradFUTURES campus-wide initiative seeks to build a campus ecosystem to support graduate professional development. This involves the collective efforts of many University offices, centers, and programs who share a common mission of empowering graduate students. The various pages of this site integrate and promote the wonderful events, resources, and opportunities offered for graduate students across the campus community.

To ensure that graduate students are aware of all of the people and partners dedicated to their personal and professional growth, we will regularly update this site with Campus Partner Spotlights featuring members of the campus community and the critical role they play in empowering graduate students. 

To learn more about the campus partners involved in GradFUTURES, please explore the links below. This list is constantly evolving as new programs and partnerships are created.

If you're a member of the campus community and would like to learn how you can join the GradFUTURES initiative, please contact us at [email protected]. Please also check out the form below to submit an event for the GradFUTURES weekly newsletter.
