Get Advice and Support
Our specialty is helping graduate students, and we are here to help you navigate the issues, challenges and complications that are an inevitable part of life. The Graduate Life Office (GLO) can assist with a variety of situations including, but not limited to
- personal issues
- roommate problems
- family and health concerns
- academic challenges
- financial difficulties
We can also help you with practical questions about life on campus and in the local community.
We know about support services across campus and can refer you to the staff or office best suited to address your needs.
- Some problems or concerns can benefit from professional counseling and we can help you determine if seeking professional advice is right for you. Counselors at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Vaden Health Center advise students about their individual needs.
- The Office of Sexual Assault & Relationship Abuse Education & Response (SARA) offers consultation, resources and education related to sexual assault, sexual misconduct, dating and domestic violence and stalking.
Community Associates (CAs) are graduate students who work with the Graduate Life Office (GLO) and who live in each of the graduate residences.
If you experience urgent personal difficulties, relationship issues, academic problems, or other life crises, the Assistant Deans in the Graduate Life Office can be your lifeline.
