The Graduate School Professional Development Program provides a full range of training opportunities and resources to graduate students. Through our programming, we prepare students for career success as innovative future leaders. It is our mission to ensure students have the skills they need to succeed professionally as well as academically.
Our program provides the key skills that all graduate students need before completing their degree with foundational skills in: communication, academic development (scholarship, teaching & mentorship), leadership & professionalism, and career development.
