Inclusive Graduate Education Network's (IGEN) Resources for Supporting Grad Students Wellbeing: Co-created by SESP alumna Aireale Joi Rodgers (MS18),  a  research assistant at the Pullias Center for Higher Education and a PhD student in the Urban Education Policy program at USC's Rossier School of Education. This resource offers links to a combination of tools, websites, reflective commentaries, and research articles that we hope will resonate with graduate students and postdocs.
