Graduate Student Appreciation Week

National Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. The goal of the week is to highlight the contributions, impact, and value of graduate and professional students throughout our community.
