The goal of the Institute is to integrate information about graduate education within the EIU undergraduate experience so that students are better informed about the opportunities and benefits of graduate education and better prepared to pursue an advanced degree.


GN4U- The Graduate Network for Undergraduate Students

Meet our graduate mentors!
A network of graduate students is available to undergraduates at EIU to connect students to those who are already pursuing advanced degrees. This peer-to-peer network works to answer real-life questions about how to get involved in research, funding and assistantships, time management, graduate admission applications, and all those issues graduate students have experienced and are currently experiencing in their pursuit of a graduate degree. Networking events are held to enable undergraduate students to meet with graduate students. The next event is March 18 at 5:00 pm in the 7th Street Underground of the University Union.


Come join us to get connected to the graduate community at EIU!

Awesome prizes given away throughout the evening and we will feed you!
