Graduate Student Life at UC Merced
The mission of Graduate Student Services (GSS) is to provide coordinated services, events, information and support to enhance and enrich the educational experience of UC Merced graduate students. GSS aims to provide intellectual and social assistance to graduate students through a collaborative campus-wide effort, with the goal of helping students achieve a successful work-life balance, develop professional and personal leadership skills, overcome barriers, and build connections to campus resources, fellow graduate students, faculty and staff.
To support the research and publication goals of UC Merced graduate students, Graduate Student Services and the Bright Success Center provide writing consultant services to graduate students across the disciplines.
