Creating campus community for graduate students through programs, services, and facilities

Creating campus community for graduate students through programs, services, and facilities | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

An excellent resource from Jodie Kern-Bowen and Rick Gardner via the Association of College Unions International (ACUI):


[QUOTE] Before creating any programs or facilities for graduate students, it is important to analyze the campus environment. This means surveying graduate students, seeing what other departments already offer, examining peer institutions, and understanding what funding methods are available.

“We all need to dig a little deeper to find out what already is going on for graduate students on our campus,” Corda said. “What is the graduate school already doing? What is the graduate student government doing? What funds are available for programming for graduate students? Are there already listserves that share information to and from these areas? Is there a shared calendar? Are there other departments already doing things for graduate students?”


The National Association of Graduate-Professional Students advised that planners answer these questions as part of their analysis: “Do graduate and professional students actively participate in the undergraduate government? Why or why not? How many graduate and professional students are on your campus? How many departments or programs offer graduate degrees? Are there graduate or professional student organizations in departments or colleges?” [END QUOTE]
