C.H.A.R.T. resources

C.H.A.R.T. is a framework for how to approach your graduate studies and make use of the wide array of campus and community resources available to you as soon as you start your semester. We're here to support you in your academic, personal, and professional growth, so please take advantage of what the campus and community have to offer.

Orientation modules

Every year, we hear from students that they're overwhelmed by the amount of information presented to them. We took this feedback and created 13 short orientation modules to answer your most critical questions. Make sure to review these modules so that you can let us know of any additional questions you have.
