The Graduate and Postdoc Academic Success (GPAS) program assists Graduate School students and postdoctoral scholars in their academic and professional development during their time at Vanderbilt.  This program was created to support students and postdocs through collaborative consultations and group programming around effective time and stress management, resilience, conflict resolution, navigating academic relationships, and juggling work/life responsibilities.

Graduate Students and Postdocs, consider contacting the GPAS, if you need:

  • To discuss academic challenges and brainstorm strategies to move forward
  • Strategies for better productivity and/or progress, including goal setting, time management and prioritizing
  • Knowledge of and assistance accessing resources available to graduate students and postdocs on campus
  • Assistance working through an issue with a colleague, advisor or supervisor
  • Clarification concerning a university, departmental or program policy
  • To explore the formal options available for addressing your concern
