"The unexamined life is not worth living."
The Graduate Scholars Society was founded with the idea that graduate students should not only be dedicated researchers but also engaged scholars and citizens. The Graduate Scholars Society therefore seeks to develop graduate citizenry through small-group discussions of various intriguing and current topics, with the overarching goal of promoting self-awareness, social consciousness, and civic responsibility.
Each group explores a particular topic within the larger domains of science, art, environment, identity, religion, education, health, global and international issues, and social justice, as they relate to and impact society. The Graduate Scholars Society strengthens the graduate community by providing a stiumlating and comfortable interdisciplinary forum.
The Graduate Scholars Society (GSS) is comprised of graduate students and faculty who commit to the exploration of contemporary issues in society to sharpen their intellect, stregthen their education, and embrace their humanity.
