Graduate Student Programming


The Graduate Student of Color Socials bring together graduate students across disciplines to mix, mingle and build community! These monthly socials are hosted by NYU CMEP in collaboration with other campus partners. All are welcome to attend - more info below!

The Graduate Students of Color Dinner Series allows for an intimate opportunity for informal conversations between faculty of color and graduate students of color over dinner. Graduate students hear from a faculty member about their individual journeys and experiences in navigating academia and other professional arenas. Space is limited - visit to RSVP now - more info below!
