About Our Workshops & Events


Each semester, the Office of Graduate Studies offers workshops and events for a variety of graduate students. We have multiple series with topics and discussions for both prospective students & current graduate students!

Office of Graduate Studies Events

The Office of Graduate Studies hosts special events throughout the semester, including our Week of Welcome, Research Symposiums, and Graduate Student Appreciation Week.

Prospective Student Series

Co-sponsored by Career Services, Graduate Admissions, and Graduate Studies - the Prospective Student Series focuses on what graduate school is, appying, choosing a program, and how to survive once you begin your studies.

Professional Development Series

Our Professional Development Series, co-sponsored by the Graduate & Professional Student Council and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, provides opportunities for grad students to learn and fine tune skills and knowledge that will be essential for professional development after graduating.

Postdoctoral Development Series

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is committed to providing opportunities for postdoctoral scholars to enhance their research and academic skills as a way to ensure future success as researchers, faculty, and administrators.
