Graduate Student Appreciation Week

April 1-5, 2019



Graduate Student Appreciation Week is celebrated each year during the first week of April by universities across the Unites States to recognize the accomplishments and contributions of graduate students to teaching, research, and service.  At USM we celebrate by recognizing outstanding scholarship, highlighting valuable resources, and providing information to help our students successfully complete their graduate programs and maximize the benefits of their degrees.



April 2, 2019 | 2-4 p.m. | McCain Library, Second Floor

Each year the Graduate School showcases outstanding graduate students from each academic college in the Graduate Student Hall of Fame. Selected  by their college Dean and photographed in their research environment, the student is honored with a canvas portrait which will be unveiled and displayed for one year. The Graduate Student Hall of Fame is located in the Office of the Graduate School on second floor of McCain Library. An Open House with refreshments will immediately follow the unveiling ceremony.



From learning Citation Management to a Graduate Luncheon with the Dean, the Graduate School is partnering with the University community to deliver a series of events and workshops during Graduate Student Appreciation Week.  These events will provide graduate students with opportunities for networking and professional development designed to help them succeed. Watch this space for a complete list of events!
