CMU Portugal Celebrates Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week

Every year Carnegie Mellon University’s Pittsburgh campus celebrates Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation week with a variety of events for graduate students. To recognize our students, the CMU Portugal Program joined the celebrations by hosting an Iced Coffee Bar and desserts on Wednesday April 3rd in Scott Hall. Attendees included Dual Degree Ph.D. students, Affiliated Ph.D. students as well as some friends of the program. Attending departments included Electrical Computer Engineering, Engineering and Public Policy, Computer Science, Human Computer Interaction, and Software & Societal Systems. 

Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week was launched in 1993 by student members of the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS). Celebrated nationally each year during the first week of April, the event seeks to recognize and celebrate the contributions, impact, and value of graduate and professional students on campuses throughout the United States. 

CMU Portugal currently has an open call for Visiting Faculty & Researchers and Visiting Students closing on April 8th, as well as a call for Affiliated Ph.D. Students which closes on May 2nd.
