Position: Graduate Assistant - MIGSS

Message from Jackie, MIGSS Coordinator:

Hello Graduate Students!

I know that you, like me, are going to navigate through a "new normal" with the recent changes at BGSU in the next couple of months as the President wants the university to take precautions in order for the students, faculty and staff to remain healthy. But, that's okay. Even though there will be some changes, be sure to reach out to your professors, administrators and fellow colleagues for support. 

Since we have been instructed to not hold events on campus, the Graduate College and MIGSS decided to hold the remainder of the events online. Stay tuned to your emails to find out how to participate online. 

Please let me know how I can be any assistance to you by reaching out to me at!

Good luck with the rest of your semester!

Upcoming Events Spring 2020

This seminar will be online via WebEx.


Multicultural Initiatives for Graduate Student Success (MIGSS) is a collaborative effort between the Graduate College and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. The program is designed to celebrate diversity, encourage inclusion and positively influence the BGSU graduate learning community.

MIGSS assists in recruiting underrepresented populations for graduate study and coordinates a broad array of events and services designed to support students from their acceptance to graduation and beyond. With the realization that graduate education is much more than books and classes, the Graduate College encourages personal and professional growth through campus activities, career planning and preparation, networking opportunities and involvement in student organizations.

Successful achievement of academic and professional goals is a top priority of MIGSS, which is accomplished through a supportive university environment. Current graduate students often comment that the personal attention they received and the other resource support provided are among the factors that influenced their decision to choose BGSU and to persevere through the rigors of graduate education.
