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, you can contact to schedule a meeting if you would like to discuss your application (this is optional). 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 if it meets the criteria. Announcements for jobs/TA opportunities/human subject recruitment postings (and the like) do not qualify.
