Graduate Career and Professional Development

We’re here to support you during each stage of your graduate studies. With a variety of events and activities, as well as resources to explore on your own time, we’ll help you build the skills and networks you need to succeed after graduation. We can even help fund your travel to present at conferences.


Our events and workshops will support your career and professional development. To sharpen your research skills, consider attending the Responsible Conduct of Research Forum Series. You can earn a transcript notation indicating your expertise.  

You can also attend Graduate Colloquium events to build relationships and discover the work of a range of scholars, artists and other professionals.
