GradCare puts UF graduate students in touch with solutions to problems

GradCare makes finding solutions to your problems as a University of Florida graduate student easier.

On a campus as large and complex as UF’s, finding solutions to scholastic, administrative, health, housing, food supply, or other problems might seem daunting for Grad Gators. But GradCare serves as your convenient first stop to cut through barriers, pinpoint your predicament, and put you in touch with pertinent sources of help — no muss, no fuss.

Christopher WalkerStaffed by Assistant Director Christopher Walker (pictured left), GradCare provides an empathetic ear, experienced counsel, and the wherewithal of UF’s Campus Assistance and Resources for Empowerment (CARE) initiative. As a practitioner of non-clinical case management, he meets one-on-one with graduate students (in person, over the telephone, or via Zoom) to figure out their needs, find the best possible fixes for them, and follow up afterwards.

He is available at Peabody Hall on Mondays and Tuesdays, and at Grinter Hall (the Graduate School’s home base) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays (except on official UF holidays).
