Meet in a small group

Meet monthly with a small group of other grad students from across the university. Meetings are facilitated, supportive, and informal. Each group member describes the progress they have made since the previous meeting, as well as any challenges they’ve encountered; then, the group as a whole offers support and advice. Join a check-in group.
