The University of Georgia Graduate School seeks to support prospective and enrolled Latinx graduate students by providing avenues for institutional and peer support, and campus community engagement.  The ¡Dale Pa’lante! Graduate Recruitment Initiative was created to raise awareness about graduate education, assist students with the transition to graduate school, and build community among Latinx graduate students, faculty, and staff. The workshops and events coordinated are designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in graduate school and empower them as newly enrolled students.
