The Harvard GSAS Student-Parents Organization aims to enrich the academic experience and provide visibility and support for graduate student and postdoctoral fellow parents at Harvard. This will result in the creation of a more collegial and happy environment for the entire Harvard community and attract a diverse, well-rounded, accomplished, and mature pool of graduate student candidates. The group advocates for increased institutional and financial support, identifies and addresses problems that are unique to international graduate student parents, and increases awareness of issues regarding housing, childcare, and community.
