The mission of Connections is to improve the experience of those in our community through: disseminating knowledge, engaging in intergroup dialogue, and creating an inclusive and diverse community for all. Connections accomplishes this through monthly modules: 

  • In the first meeting, an educator or expert presents their research as it relates to diversity and inclusion. This exposes members to a variety of topics.
  • In the second meeting, Connections members further explore these topics by engaging in an open dialogue with their “families.”
  • Connections hosts a monthly happy hour called “Cookies and Beer” where members can discuss meeting topics and current events in a more relaxed setting.
  • Finally, we participate in yearly community service events and cultural field trips.
Connections is open to graduate students, professional students, postdocs, and staff of all backgrounds. Sign up for Connections today and...

  • ​​Share your unique experiences with peers of various backgrounds, graduate programs, and levels of training.
  • Enjoy FREE LUNCH while discussing social issues in a supportive learning environment.
  • Expand your social and academic network to include students outside of your program.
