April 4, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Graduate School’s Diversity and Student Success program invites the UNC-Chapel Hill campus community to the inaugural Surviving and Thriving Summit. We will explore stories from graduate students of color through interactive storyboards and a performance piece, culminating in a facilitated discussion. We invite you to join us in this gathering space as we learn from one another and build our community together.

Below are themes that we’ll explore:


  • Struggling academically
  • Feeling alone
  • Mental health and well-being declining
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Feelings of vulnerability
  • Feelings of exhaustion
  • Contemplated quitting graduate school


  • Building community
  • Feeling understood and heard
  • Feelings of self-pride
  • Asking for help
  • Building networking
  • Finding mentors
  • Being seen and known
