Graduate Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. The week seeks to emphasize the contributions, impact, and value of graduate and professional students on campuses throughout the United States.

The 2024 Graduate Student Appreciation Week (GSAW) at John Carroll University will be held from April 2-8, 2024. This week celebrates the contributions of JCU Graduate Students for the university and the graduate student community. Below is a schedule of events that will be hosted by the Graduate School.
