Welcome to AGPA!
Since its founding in 2015, the Association of Graduate and Professional Administrators has aimed to bring together higher education professionals at Ohio State who work with graduate and professional students to share ideas, develop best practices, and build community. As you’ve likely experienced, working with graduate and professional students requires a different approach than working with undergraduate students. AGPA is designed to connect you with colleagues who share similar responsibilities and approaches to this special field of student services. We’ve found that our connections with each other are to the benefit of ourselves, our students and our units. At our core, we’re a community dedicated to helping each other grow as professionals, and we believe in using our unified voice to advocate for policies that benefit ourselves and our students.
The AGPA monthly meetings are a great way to get involved and see what we’re all about. Check out the calendar of events for details on our meetings for the 2017-2018 academic year. You can view the calendar, subscribe to it, or view the list of meetings. In the meantime, go ahead and sign up for our listserv for updates and announcements. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to a member of the executive committee. We’ll be sure to point you in the right direction.
I hope you join us this year to learn and grow together. Go Bucks!
