Together, we are up to the challenge

The time you spend during graduate school can be some of the most rewarding as well as the most challenging times in your life. It is an opportunity to create lifelong friendships and learn skills that translate into a strong career. It is also a time when you can be challenged the most intellectually, emotionally and often financially. There can be incredible uncertainty about how your hard work and learning will translate into a long term career under the best of circumstances.

ASU Graduate College: Racism has no place anywhere

On Memorial Day 2020, George Floyd’s life ended due to a fatal encounter with police in Minneapolis. The anger surrounding Floyd’s death, and the similar deaths of Black Americans across the country, represents a failure of policing but also, our failure to acknowledge the legacy of structural racism built over centuries to devalue black lives in our communities, in our economy, and in our democracy. 

Racism has no place--anywhere.
