Life at UCLA

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars at UCLA are supported by the Graduate & Postdoctoral Success unit (GPS). Our office supports the academic success, mentored experiences, and retention of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, with a particular emphasis on underserved populations, such as underrepresented and first-gen students.


Our GPS team achieves this by:

• supporting holistic and inclusive retention programming
• delivering dynamic and effective mentor training
• offering high-touch academic case management services
