Graduate Student Appreciation Week was established in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students as a way to highlight graduate students’ value and their varied contributions to the university and the educational process. Former Graduate School dean Larry LeFlore led TWU in its first recognition of the designated week in 2014.
