Graduate Student Resources

Comparative Literature Graduate Students Site

The Comparative Literature Graduate Students Site is a collaborative learning environment for Comparative Literature graduate students and faculty to share documents, information and experiences related to teaching, professionalization and funding. By gathering and sharing these resources we aim to make the process of progressing through the degree program as describable, navigable and transparent as possible. Furthermore, by fostering a culture of collaboration we wish to work together to build a lasting contribution to the field of Comparative Literature.


Contact Sevan Madadian, the HumTech Department Technology Analyst (DTA), at Tickets can also be submitted directly to HumTech through this link. In addition to loading things like Word to your devices for curricular support, Sevan can set up printing accounts and link students’ computers to the departmental print drive or TA lounge.



The GSRC works to understand graduate and professional student needs, to connect graduate and professional students to resources and services, and to advocate for their well-being and success.


The UCLA Graduate Student Resource Center envisions itself as the nexus of graduate student services on campus, serving as a data-informed advocate for graduate student needs.


COLLABORATION – the GSRC strives to develop and achieve shared goals with key stakeholders in meeting the needs of graduate students and works to promote collaboration and cross-disciplinary engagement among students and student groups.

HOLISTIC APPROACH – the GSRC is concerned with the development and well-being of the whole student.

DIVERSITY – the GSRC works to create an inclusive campus climate while supporting specific student populations and different academic fields.

EQUITY – the GSRC recognizes that there are disparities in the availability of resources and opportunities for students and seeks to address these concerns.

ENGAGEMENT – the GSRC should facilitate student engagement with each other and with the campus community upon admission to the university and throughout their time at UCLA.

SUPPORT – the GSRC must make sure that student voices are heard and that the collective knowledge of the student and professional staff, and the many volunteers is shared with other students, staff, and faculty.

ADVOCACY – the GSRC must advocate for the needs of graduate students collectively and individually.

FLEXIBILITY – the GSRC must maintain its ability to adapt and change while staying within its mission and scope.
