Graduate Recruitment Initiative Team (GRIT)

Welcome to GRIT!

We are the Graduate Recruitment Initiative Team (GRIT). GRIT at MSU was created by graduate students out of the need for a more diverse and inclusive graduate student community at Michigan State University. We aim to be a substantial and lasting aspect of graduate student life at MSU and are available as a resource and advocate for all graduate students. GRIT focuses on two main objectives:  


We work together with BMS to actively recruit and support students from traditionally underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds. GRIT offers support to applicants in the form of application and personal statement feedback, networking opportunities, and insight on the graduate school experience.


We are committed to building a more inclusive environment on campus that welcomes and supports all graduate students. It is important that all students, regardless of age, color, gender, gender identity, disability status, height, marital status, national origin, political persuasion, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status, or weight, feel safe, appreciated, and supported at MSU. GRIT aims to accomplish this through hosting social events, facilitating wellness check-ins, and offering support for physical and mental health, as well as providing mentorship to current and prospective students.

Please reach out to any of our members if you are interested in joining GRIT, have any questions, or inquire about available resources!
