Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week

Our graduate students are a critical and valued part of the UT community. Every year, we set aside a week in spring to show them how much we appreciate them and the work we do. This year, we’re showing that appreciation online!


The Graduate School and partners across the campus collaborated to make workshops and Q&A sessions available through Zoom. These workshops are created with graduate students in mind. Those that were recorded or have handouts have links in the schedule.
