GRACS Executive Committee Members


GRACS is leading a new program in Fall 2020: the Graduate Application Assistance Program (GAAP). GAAP is a student-led program in which current CS PhD students volunteer to review applications and provide feedback. This initiative is a step toward increasing the diversity and inclusion of underrepresented groups in Computer Science. We are now accepting volunteers to be mentors and applications for mentees. Deadline Nov 27th. See the above link for details!

Tea Time!

Grad student tea time for Fall 2020 will be held virtually. See the weekly email for the link! (and if you aren't getting the weekly email, then email us at
