Graduate Student Appreciation Week 2019

Graduate Student Appreciation Week is April 1 - April 5, 2019

What is Graduate Student Appreciation Week?

In 1993, three students, Tony Rosati (Georgetown University), Gina Pearson (American University) & Anne Holt (Florida State University), all activists within NAGPS, wanted to find a way to physically manifest support and appreciation of the contributions, impact and value of graduate students. Their effort led to a cooperative initiative called National Graduate & Professional Student Appreciation Week. (Adopted from National Association of Graduate and Professional Students).
