The Graduate Students and New Professionals Community of Practice serves our membership through adaptive strategies and resources. Since its beginnings in 2004, The Eighth Vector created space for graduate students and new professionals to share best practices, publish research, and connect on issues relevant to their career level in the profession. In taking on many formats, the 8th Vector adapted and grew with its members. For the past two years, The 8th Vector was published as a blog, providing space for members to share resources in any form: traditional articles, op-eds, posters, podcasts, poetry, art, and more.

As higher education evolves, so do the needs of student affairs practitioners and scholars. We have decided to retire The 8th Vector as a publication of GSNPCOP to make space for new ways to serve our members. Thank you all for your participation in making The 8th Vector successful in its many forms over the past 18 years.
