GradSuccess Operations During Campus Disruption


The UCR campus has elected to move instruction online and scale back some campus operations in an effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. While these measures are in place, GradSuccess will be taking the following steps to continue meeting the needs of our graduate students:

GradSuccess Office

The GradSuccess office will be closed until further notice. We will add information to this site as we receive it from campus administration, and you should also follow us on social media (@UCRGradSuccess) for regular updates.


The Graduate Student Resource Center continues to host a weekly virtual coffee social on Wednesdays from 3-4pm. Join us on Zoom (link posted to our Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), check in with your fellow grad students, and enter to win some gift cards! Other community building events, such as movie nights, game nights, and an art event, will be offered online throughout Fall 2020. Check them all out on this page

If you'd like to chat with someone about online teaching, professional development, work/life balance or other challenges, such as figuring out your next steps as an international student or parenting as a graduate student during COVID-19, check out our daily Grad-to-Grad support hours. The Graduate Student Association is also hosting R'Grad support groups on Zoom on Thursdays from 5-6pm (link to join available through their Facebook).

Peer mentors should continue to meet with their mentees remotely and file their reports.

Consultations and Drop-in Hours

All Graduate Writing Center consultations during Fall 2020 will be conducted online (information on the process is posted to our WCOnline appointments system). GradQuant Drop-in Hours will take place as scheduled through Zoom. More information and the links to join are available on the GradQuant Drop-in Hours webpage

TA Training and Support

Information for TAs on how to get support in transitioning your sections and labs online is available on the TADP website and at UCR's Keep Teaching site.

We miss seeing and hearing from all of you, and hope you are staying safe and well during this challenging time. Take care of yourselves and each other.
