At the close of the fall semester, I want to take a moment to thank you for all that you contribute to our University. Graduate students are essential to the life of Carolina, and you continue to inspire me. Your sense of mission, your inquisitiveness and your kindness are models for us all.
Obtaining a graduate degree is a life-changing decision. It requires focus, diligence and tenacity. It can be a challenging pursuit—but should not be at the expense of your mental health and well-being. Please remember to take care of yourselves and remember that The Graduate School is here to serve you.
Should you need academic or personal support, financial assistance, or simply someone to connect with to explore options, there are resources available to you from The Graduate School. Our Associate Dean Kate McAnulty is here for confidential conversations, connecting you to resources and helping to navigate complex situations.
There are also several resources available to graduate students:
- The Heels Care Network is a place for all Tar Heels to come together and access mental health and well-being resources at Carolina.
- The Carolina Collaborative for Resilience serves both undergraduate and graduate students and strives to provide individualized support.
- Student Wellness offers professional wellness coaching.
- Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is an additional resource for you to safeguard your mental health and well-being.
On behalf of The Graduate School, we wish you a restful holiday season.
