Graduate Net Initiative

The Graduate Net Initiative seeks to serve the campus and community by expanding access to postbaccalaureate academic programs and support services for Hispanic and other under-represented students while bolstering the ability of all our graduate students to succeed academically and professionally.  The Initiative consists of three interrelated parts:

  1. The Graduate Net serves as a portal for services like direct financial aid assistance for research and publication, and digital professional development seminars.
  2. Delivery of cutting-edge faculty training on digital postbaccalaureate pedagogy and mentorship supports the expansion of online graduate programs and bolsters faculty-student relationships.
  3. A campus-wide expansion of mentorship and internship programs currently housed in individual programs strengthens community links and better prepares students to be leaders in their fields.
