Know Your Resource:
GradSupport Liaison

Campus Residents: You Have a GradSupport Liaison!
The OGE’s GradSupport team of fantastic advisors has started a Residence Hall Liaison Program. Each residence hall’s house team is served by a GradSupport dean, so they have a consistent point of contact within the office. While you’ll likely meet your GradSupport liaison at a house event, students are still free to meet with any GradSupport dean. You can schedule an appointment by emailing or calling (617) 253-4860.
