Happy new year, and welcome to the beginning of the academic semester! For many of us, a new year represents a time of renewal and reinvigoration. As we consider the start of the new year, two things remain true: UNC-Chapel Hill’s graduate students’ commitment to a love of learning and drive to cultivate curiosity.
Pursuing a graduate degree requires rigor—and your desire to create new knowledge through curiosity distinguishes you as our graduate students seek to solve humanity’s greatest challenges. This semester, The Graduate School will strive to support you, as graduate students are emblematic of how a graduate education can transform our University and beyond.
We are here to serve you through a variety of ways in your pursuit of a graduate degree:
- Mental health and well-being programming to support your personal and professional needs.
- Professional development workshops and resources to position you for the future of work.
- Community-building resources for graduate students with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences.
On our website, you will find many useful links to assist you with academic or related questions you might have. I hope you’ll take advantage of the many resources available to you, which are designed for your success at Carolina.
We wish you a successful start to the new year and a wonderful semester ahead.
