  • 3/2022: GRO was one of the organizers to hold a vigil to demonstrate solidarity with Ukraine. Ona, GRO Co-Chair, shared her thought: “We see that the ongoing conflict has caused major displacement. This is a truly significant humanitarian crisis for the people of Ukraine,” she said. “The vigil was so emotional for a lot of people, especially those that were speaking in Ukrainian and singing the anthem.” Thank you very much to those who came. Check out the detailed article here on JHU News-Letter.
  • 8/2021: “The Vivien Thomas Scholars Initiative (VTSI) will endow and launch a major new effort to address historic underrepresentation in STEM. It will provide permanent funding to add a sustained cohort of approximately 100 new slots for diverse Ph.D. students at The Johns Hopkins University.” For more information, please visit here.
The GRO is the representative organization for graduate students belonging to the Homewood campus of JHU from both the School of Engineering[WSE] as well as the School of Arts and Sciences[KSAS]. The GRO consists of graduate students, GC council members who function as department representatives, and an executive board. Members of the E-Board act as liaisons between graduate students and administration to advocate for graduate student needs and we host different types of social events throughout the year for graduate students.
