Interested in learning about the importance of mental health in graduate school? Want support in identifying practices that will cultivate and enhance your wellness as a graduate student? Attend this interactive presentation with guest speaker Dr. Raghav Sampangi of Ph.D. Balance.

Raghav is an active advocate for mental health and well-being, and inclusion, in academia. In this regard, he works closely with global advocacy groups: Ph.D. Balance (focused on graduate student mental health and well-being) and Dragonfly Mental Health (focused on faculty mental health and well-being). Raghav believes in action-oriented advocacy and developing community approaches to well-being, which involves developing support for all academic community members.

Raghav is Senior Instructor in the Faculty of Computer Science and Faculty Associate for the Centre for Teaching and Learning at Dalhousie University, Canada, as well as a Cultural Competence in Computing (3C) Fellow at Duke University.

This event is a collaboration between Core Programs—Office of Graduate Student Affairs and Graduate Student Equity & Excellence (formerly GO-MAP), both housed within The Graduate School. Send event questions to cpinfo@uw.edu.
