Interviews and Focus Groups

The RGASC wants to learn more about the academic and professional support needed by UTM graduate students!

The Graduate Student Support Strategist will be examining the effectiveness of UTM’s current graduate programming and identifying opportunities for growth and development of graduate programming at UTM. From mid-January to the beginning of April, we will be conducting interviews and focus groups with graduate students. Now is your opportunity to help us better understand and address your needs. If that isn’t motivation enough, all graduate students who participate in an interview or focus group will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card!

To participate in a 30-minute interview or 2-hour focus group, email Jessica Carlos at

Registration by email is required. Food and drinks will be provided.
