Professional Development for Graduate Students

The Center for Graduate Life supports the success of graduate students from all disciplines by providing numerous academic and career professional development workshops. These graduate student professional development workshops are developed with the Graduate School's five core competencies in mind:  Communication, Leadership, Teaching & Instruction, Personal & Professional Growth and Advancement, and Research & Scholarly Inquiry. All enrolled graduate students are encouraged to add value to their degrees by attending these free workshops.

Students are also encouraged to attend the various other workshops sponsored by our campus partners.
