Further thoughts on the UChicagoGRAD rebranding

Update: Regarding the brand-new rebranding of Grad Affairs as UChicagoGRAD, Kangaroo observes,

Though this is being rolled out as resources for “grads,” there (of course) isn’t a discussion of reducing master’s student debt loads or ensuring that existing funding systems don’t perpetuate societal inequalities by enabling funding inequities across divisions and excluding people who can’t afford a <$50,000 debt load.

This raises an awkward question. Does it make sense for administrators to decide which “resources” grad need most, or which grads deserve them best?
