The Graduate Student Recognition Celebration was a major highlight of Graduate-Professional Student Appreciation Week at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (April 1-7). The Graduate School sponsors the annual recognition event, bringing the campus community together to celebrate graduate student achievement – and to thank the network of supportive faculty and staff members, administrators, fellow students, alumni and friends of graduate education. Chancellor Carol L. Folt and Dean Steve Matson shared their appreciation for graduate students and their contributions to teaching, research and outreach to communities throughout North Carolina and beyond.

The Graduate and Professional Student Federation (GPSF) held its annual Graduate Research and Policy Expo during that week. Matson commended the GPSF during the recognition event for its leadership in planning the expo and for coordinating awards that honor student services managers and graduate student mentors. Hundreds of graduate students were recognized at the Graduate Student Recognition Celebration. Please view the full listing of honorees.
