GradWeek is a celebration of graduate and professional student life and academic achievement at The University of Virginia. The GradWeek program was conceived and planned by the GradWeek Student Planning Committee with the support of the Office of the Dean of Students. The purpose of GradWeek is to both highlight and augment the substantial intellectual and social activities of the graduate and professional community at the University of Virginia. The goals of the Student Planning Committee will be met through several different kinds of events, including student and faculty mixers, teaching and career planning workshops, and inter-disciplinary social events.
