Graduate School is stressful. The Mentoring Circle is designed to offer social, cultural, academic, and professional guidance to students who may need additional support such as students on academic probation, racial/ethnic/cultural/sexual/gender minorities, veterans, students with dependents, students with disabilities, and first generation students.  The Graduate School brings together partners to offer shared programing and resources.
