Diverse group of students and mentors for GSP



To empower participants to take an intentional and strategic approach to their graduate education
To educate students about how to access the myriad resources available to them at Princeton
To develop a sense of community by connecting graduate students across disciplinary boundaries   


Scholars meet six to eight times over the academic year for “seminar/workshop” sessions
