We know that our graduate students at the University of Illinois are incredible. They can solve complex problems faster than a supercomputer. They can leap multiple projects in a single bound. And their creativity is a marvel to behold. To us, and to their families, grad students are superheroes!

So, we invited family members of current graduate students to create superhero-themed art to celebrate the grad student in their lives. They honored graduate students from Molecular and Cellular Biology, Educational Policy and Leadership, the Gies Business iMBA and MBA programs, Nutritional Sciences, and Technical Systems Management. We join them as we honor all graduate students from every program across the University of Illinois.

KAM hopes that our graduate students feel celebrated during this year's Graduate Student Appreciation Week. We're very proud of this collaboration with the Graduate College at Illinois.
