Essential Summer Reading for Graduate Students

For many graduate students, the summer months are an important time for self-directed reading and other tasks that have taken a backseat over the fall and spring semesters. Regardless of your stage in your graduate program, consider adding one or two books to your summer reading list this year that will help advance your professional development goals.

Support resources available to students

We know that many students are struggling with the numerous tragic circumstances we are facing at the local, national, and global levels. Seeing human suffering, in any form, especially when you do not have the ability to address it, can be incredibly painful. During this extraordinarily difficult time, please be certain to support yourself and be sensitive to the needs of others in our community who may be experiencing fear, pain, and/or grief.

Native/Indigenous graduate students help build a more culturally-responsive campus

Each November, we commemorate Native American Heritage Month by acknowledging and recognizing the heritage and contributions (past, present and future) of Native and Indigenous people. However, the various ways in which our Native/Indigenous students impact Berkeley extend well beyond a particular month or day. These students’ multifaceted experiences not only help to inform their individual identities, but also help build a more culturally-responsive campus community.
