Reserving the GRC

In addition to workshops, writing services, and career advising, the Graduate Resource Center (GRC) provides space and resources to graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and the campus community.

"The GRC has benefited me as a graduate student in many critical ways including professional development skills, succeeding in academia, to balancing school work with a healthy life. It offers all the resources that I need to succeed."
