The Graduate Student Center (GSC) is designed to be a central space where graduate and professional students from all disciplines and departments on campus can come together. Shared research ideas, interdisciplinary seminars, professional development activities and meetings are all encouraged. The centralized meeting space will create a stronger sense of community among all graduate and professional students and provide a well-rounded Carolina experience.
