PADSING, WINSTON E. (2023). THRIVING AMONG GRADUATE STUDENTS: THE CASE OF ILOCOS SUR POLYTECHNIC STATE COLLEGE TAGUDIN CAMPUS. Master of Science in Education major in General Education. Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College, Graduate School, Tagudin, Ilocos Sur. Adviser: DR. TESSIE L. DELA CRUZ The goal of graduate programs is to support the growth of the following generation of researchers, scholars, professionals, and leaders across many different fields. Higher education institutions must respond to the current crisis affecting graduate students by promoting student thrive. Through interviews with eleven (11) with the aid of aide-mèmoire, the study produced extended texts as a result of transcribing the interview recordings. These extended texts were subjected to cool and ward analyses which revealed that the participants view thriving in the graduate school as Balancing Responsibilities, Building Bridges and Connections, Bringing Positivity, Acquiring Skills and Knowledge, Striding towards Personality Development and Enrolling for Professional Development and Career Progression. With these, the Process Improvement Plan in thriving in the graduate school was developed. Finally, the study recommends the following: As a way of addressing the challenges of thriving in the graduate school, that the Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College and its officials may use the data findings to provide the students with relevant interventions or programs as a way of addressing their challenges. ISPSC Officials may formulate long term Process Improvement Plan that shall solve the identified challenges in the graduate school. The Proposed Process Improvement Plan in thriving in the graduate school may be pilot tested or used for improvement. Further studies should be conducted to test the effectiveness of the proposed plan.
