Graduate Student Groups

The GRO is the University’s official body for recognition of graduate student campus groups and reviews applications received by SLI.

If you want to start a graduate student group, please review the application material required by LEED.

The application period is typically at the start of the fall semester.

As soon as you have a draft application ready, please contact to schedule a meeting to discuss your application. At this meeting, GRO can give you feedback and advice to prevent any complications during the review process.

Advertising events

To send a broadcast e-mail to grad students at JHU, send an e-mail to with the message you want to send (including a subject line). The event should be open to a majority, if not all, of the grad student body. The announcement mail will be forwarded to the grad population is it meets this criteria. Announcements for jobs/TA opportunities/human subject recruitment postings (and the like) do not qualify.
