Explore Our Diverse Community
HGSE is committed to providing a welcoming environment for our diverse community, and we seek to promote and celebrate the diversity of thought and experience that our students bring to campus. The Office of Student Affairs is a resource for our graduate students to help make their experience at HGSE richer, safer, and more personally rewarding. Students take advantage of a broad array of outlets for discussions, events, and community-building activities. Whether it's a Trivia Night sponsored by the Student Government Association, a conference organized by the Voices for Africa, or a service project produced by students in a degree program, HGSE supports a vibrant life for all members of our community.
