Submission Details and Guidelines

Graduate Studies publishes submissions on a space-available basis with priority given to campus units that serve graduate students and/or postdoctoral scholars. All student groups are welcome to submit events, regardless of ideology, religious affiliation, etc. However, all student groups must be affiliated with a student organization that is registered through the Center for Student Involvement. Graduate Studies reserves the right to accept, reject, or edit all submissions for publication.

Submissions must include a link to a landing or registration page. No attachments, images or fliers, please!

The GradLink editor will not publish commercial advertisements or announcements, nor will we accept items advocating candidates for off-campus elections.​

Please submit all announcements, news items, and events to no later than 3:00 pm on the last Friday of the month. Deadlines and release dates are listed on the Graduate Studies calendar.
