Calling all graduate and professional students: “Grad Days” is a celebration of graduate and professional student life and academic achievement. Ten days of events through April 6 will include talks, panel discussions, a resource fair and social gatherings that aim to address many of the issues facing these students in today’s environment.

On Tuesday, President Teresa A. Sullivan gave a talk in the auditorium of the Mary and David Harrison Institute for American History, Literature, and Culture/Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, followed by a question-and-answer session regarding the role of the graduate student at U.Va. and the changing face of higher education.

Grad Days events continue Wednesday with the 13th Annual Robert J. Huskey Research Exhibition. (Read more here.)

Several lunch workshops are geared toward subgroups of graduate students, such as one for minority students on Thursday and one for female students on Monday.

A resource fair on Friday, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Newcomb Hall Gallery and main lounge, will feature representatives from scholarly and support groups on Grounds that graduate students are often unaware of, according to the Graduate Student Council, which has organized “Grad Days.”
