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
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.
