Registration for our Fall 2022 cohorts is now closed.
If you’d like an email reminder when SUBgroups registration opens for Fall 2023, fill out this short form.
What are SUBgroups?
- small online peer groups of first-year math grad students that connect students with experiences and identities in common.
- regularly-scheduled video chat sessions to support and connect with first-years in other programs
- chances to share successes and struggles, to lift up others, and to bridge into new math experiences. Learn more.
Here’s what some former SUBgroups participants had to say:
“I liked being able to talk to other students who had similar experiences to me. It was a place where I could safely vent about my own school/cohort. It was neat to learn about different programs and how they function.”
“I felt like I was able to learn a lot about other peoples’ experiences and that helped make me feel that I was not alone.”
“Do it! I knew that the first semester of grad school would be rough, and indeed it was, but having an awesome group of people who were willing to talk about their experiences and listen to each other was such a great source of support, validation, and joy, and I’m so thankful to SUBgroups for that.”
We are glad to share that a team of junior physicists runs SU(5), a program modeled on SUBgroups for first-year physics grad students. Please tell your physics friends & colleagues!
