Graduate Parent Support Network (GPSn)

The Graduate Parent Support Network (GPSn) is an organization committed to supporting Purdue's graduate students with families. GPSn helps our graduate students with children navigate school-related issues, identify helpful resources, and provides a platform for students to express their concerns and share their experiences. If you are looking for the opportunity to join a family-friendly community of graduate student parents that are dedicated improving the Purdue Graduate experience, please contact for more information.
