Connecting with your peers and creating a sense of community is a great part of the graduate school experience. The Graduate School promotes social networking among students and postdocs through regularly scheduled events and platforms for connecting remotely. Student organizations and recreation on campus present open and inclusive environments for getting to know your peers and maintaining a healthy social lifestyle during your time at UNH.
These weekly drop-in sessions aim to help postdocs and students from all graduate programs learn to write more productively. These sessions help students identify writing goals and deadlines and then work towards accomplishing those goals in a supportive writing environment with other graduate students and postdocs. For more information on this semester’s schedule, please contact Caroline Kanaskie at email@example.com.

Founded in 1999, and under the Administrative leadership of the UNH Graduate School since 2018, this consortium has successes in an array of fronts, including collaborative work on recruitment and retention activities and innovative research regarding supports and challenges facing underrepresented graduate students.
