Celebrate Acts of Kindness!

Here are some acts we celebrated in 2021!

A professor went to the doorstep of every student in his group to deliver homemade dessert for Thanksgiving.

A graduate wellness champion advocated for colleagues to help them figure out effective health care.

My lab mates support me through every stage of research development, editing and brainstorming even when i am running late. I could not do it without their support.

A PhD student organized a hyalite ski day for our department!!

A grad student who lives across the way, during a blisteringly cold day, came over to help me clear the snow and ice from my car. It's not the first time he has gone out of his way to help me.

My fellow grad student friend offered to review a long, and undoubtedly very boring essay and provide feedback for me. Thanks friend!
