Multicultural Graduate Network – October events

MGN First Generation Graduate Student Mixer

For some of us, our identity as underrepresented students on this campus is an intersection of many factors including lived experiences. Come commiserate with the other grad students whose families are still trying to figure out what exactly a graduate student does.

When: Wednesday, Oct 2, 2019 from 4:00-6:30 at Union South

RSVP to the First Gen Mixer


MGN Mental Health Panel and Mixer

The Multicultural Graduate Network (MGN) and Graduates and Professionals with Disabilities (GPSD) Initiative will be facilitating discussion on the topic of mental health through a graduate student panel and mixer to follow. Graduate students will be speaking on the panel about their personal struggles. The goal is to answer questions, address concerns and create a safe space to connect and find support among other students facing similar challenges. The panel will be followed by a mixer.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!: How to Talk about Your Research Without Compromising Your Identities

If you can convince your momma outside of academia that what you’re doing matters, you can pretty much convince anyone. This workshop, hosted by the Multicultural Graduate Network and facilitated by the Writing Center, will explore strategies for explaining your research to others while holding a space for multiple, intersecting identities across a range of language, writing, and speech practices. Please join us for a lively conversation as we discuss strategies for presenting your research, for connecting with a wide range of audiences, and for supporting each other’s work! **Dinner will be served at 5:30

When: Thursday, October 10 | 5:45 – 6:45 pm
Where: 6191 Helen C. White Hall

RSVP to the MGN Writing Workshop
