Office of Undergraduate Research’s “Grad Chats:" Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities

Do you know a student who might be considering pursuing a graduate degree?  

Invite them to attend the Office of Undergraduate Research’s “Grad Chats.”  

These facilitated panel discussions are designed to demystify graduate student life for current undergraduate students. We will delve into why current graduate students decided to pursue advanced degrees, how they decided where to apply, and their advice for future graduate students. 

Students can identify their area of study below and register, or view our flyer here [https://www.urca.msu.edu/files/resources/150/document/Grad%20Chats%20Flyer.pdf]

Listening and Call to Action

The WLI stands in solidarity with Black communities over the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, and is committed to redoubling its focus on equity.

The WLI Executive Board stands with the words of Michelle Obama: it is upon us to root out racism.

To support our commitment to equity and mitigating racism, WLI is hosting listening sessions. The sessions include two goals: support and action. The listening sessions will be a place to share and listen, and to discuss action including what you would like to see in WLI’s work around equity.

Please join us for new listening sessions with MSU’s Women’s Leadership Institute to support our commitment to equity and mitigating racism.
