The role of "the graduate student" is a challenge to define within most student affairs professional organizations. NODA's commitment to this constituency and their distinct needs is exhibited through its organization of the Graduate Student Network.

The purpose of the Graduate Student Network is to foster learning, support, and professional development of NODA’s graduate student members. The Network achieves this by:

  • Expanding graduate student education and understanding of the field of Orientation, Transition, and Retention
  • Creating opportunities for graduate students to connect with peers, professionals, and the Association
  • Fostering career development opportunities that allow students to clarify career goals, explore professional values, and learn successful job search strategies
  • Offering support to current or future doctoral student members
  • Assisting in the transition from graduate student to becoming a new professional
