Community of Scholars | Events Celebrating Graduate and Professional Students


Summer 2021:
Promoting Personal Well Being and Healthy Habits in the Graduate Community

Community of Scholars is a series of events hosted by the Graduate and Professional School to celebrate and promote community among our graduate and professional students and stakeholders. Typically, we hold events in conjunction with Graduate Student Appreciation Week. This year we decided to schedule events outdoors over the summer to allow our students, faculty, staff and loved ones to gather,
socially distanced, to relax, unwind, mingle, and reflect on this year’s theme: Mental Health and Wellness.

All events are free for graduate students, faculty, staff and their guests. We hope you will join us 
for some or all of our 2021 Community of Scholars events!
