The Graduate and Professional School and the Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) annually host Graduate Community of Scholars programming to bring our community together in recognition and celebration of the invaluable contributions, impact and value of graduate and professional students at Texas A&M. Graduate Community of Scholars (GCoS) events take place each spring during or around Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (typically the first week of April).

Spring 2024 Theme

Each year, GCoS centers on a theme that we feel is important to -- and resonates with -- the graduate and professional community. Our theme this year, Living with Integrity: Aligning Values and Actions, focuses on the Aggie Core Value of Integrity.

Aggie graduate and professional students embody integrity, striving to align inner values with external actions. Though not always the easiest, practicing integrity can be most rewarding path, enabling us to reach our full potential, feel fulfilled, inspire and earn the trust of others. 

For this year's Graduate Community of Scholars events, we want to encourage this kind of integrity and honor those Aggie graduate and professional students who exemplify it.

We're excited to announce and host a slate of events during and around National Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (April 1-5).
