COSSPP Women's Graduate Student Network

College of Social Sciences and Public Policy

Connect with the College


The COSSPP Women Graduate Student Network was created in Spring 2018 as an initiative by Dean Tim Chapin. The mission of the group is to provide a network for women graduate students where they can share experiences and meet informally with each other and with women faculty. The network supplies social and academic support for women graduate students, offers career development advice, and provides role models from the COSSPP faculty.

The Network sponsors several events each semester and encourages and helps set up smaller groups of women grad students interested in specific areas such as writing research papers or dealing with teaching challenge.

A small group of COSSPP women faculty and students serves as a steering committee for the network.
