Student Affiliates

The graduate student affiliation program promotes interactions between students and faculty across campus, by providing fora for discussion and engagement, by disseminating information and research findings, and by establishing networks and collaborative activities.  Graduate student affiliates work with the Center and its faculty affiliates to plan programs of mutual interest and benefit for the Center, academic, and public communities.  Affiliates receive news about Center activities, and are eligible to apply for Center funding opportunities.
