Creating Connections

What is Creating Connections?

Creating Connections is a program where we create student-led spaces for traditionally marginalized/underserved graduate student populations to come together and build community. These spaces can be focused on a specific topic of interest, can be an open forum to discuss student experiences, or can feature guest speakers. Student facilitators who lead the spaces will create a plan for each event tailored to the group.


We are currently seeking student facilitators for Creating Connections in spring 2023!

Interested in serving as a student facilitator? Click here to learn more and apply by January 12, 2023.


What marginalized/underserved graduate student populations will have events for Creating Connections?

Populations are determined by student facilitators. The populations we currently have facilitators for are:

  • Black Men
  • Parenting Students
  • Queer Students
  • International Students


What about other marginalized/underserved graduate student populations?

We are excited to offer more Creating Connections spaces as more students volunteer to facilitate the spaces! Interested in facilitating a Creating Connections group? Click here!
