Graduate Success Partners (GSP)

A Graduate Success Partner or GSP is a Master’s Student, Gap Year Student or PhD candidate at the University of Michigan. GSPs serve as mentors with third-year and more senior undergrad students in SuccessConnects. GSPs have graduated undergrad and know what it takes to prepare for a career or continued education in graduate school. GSPs work with scholars in peer groups, based on an academic field of interest, and help scholars identify research, internships, senior theses and other projects that prepare students for life after undergrad. GSPs also know what it takes to succeed academically, lead student organizations and on-campus initiatives, and balance the heavy workload of upperclassmen students, and help SC scholars with precisely this balance.

Do you want to impact the lives of third, fourth and fifth-year undergraduates? We want you! The application to be an Academic Success Partner for SuccessConnects opens in the middle of winter semester each year. Contact sharbu@umich.edu for more information.
