The Grads Give Back (GGB) program was developed in 2014 to allow graduate students to contribute and collaborate with local organizations in Vermont that provide aid to the community.  GGB has events each semester to give graduate students to learn about the greater Burlington community, meet other graduate students, and come together to help others.

Are you interested in helping organizing the GGB events? Contact Michelle DiPinto, Member-At-Large Grads Give Back Coordinator, at mdipinto@uvm.edu to join the Grads Give Back Commitee.
