Upcoming Events Spring 2020


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.
