Graduate Student Resources


Strategies and Tips

Graduate students at the University of Massachusetts fill a number of complex roles. Many are both students and employees as TAs or RAs, or work in groups in labs or on joint projects with other students and faculty. Some are handling both demanding academic requirements and important family responsibilities. These interconnected relationships enrich the experience of graduate work, and at the same time, create opportunities for misunderstanding and conflict. Conflict is a normal part of everyone’s life, but not many are confident about dealing with it effectively. Here are some resources that may be of help.
