  • Fostering a sense of community and belonging that recognizes, welcomes, and celebrates the diversity of graduate students at Western.
  • Increasing visibility of university and community resources focused on access, equity, academic excellence, and professional/career development.
  • Providing access to a community of peer advisors focused on wellbeing, connection, and navigating university-wide supports.
  • Offering  access to a community of co-inquirers with expertise in an array of academic literacies and disciplines.
  • Facilitating a central and flexible physical space for independent and collaborative endeavors that support student agency.
