Office of Graduate Professional Development

This newly formed unit within the Graduate School promotes professional development activities to expose students to a range of career opportunities within and outside academia, and to provide sessions and workshops. We seek opportunities and means to provide graduate students with additional skills and tools in areas that transcend disciplinary knowledge and content, including both written and oral communication with non-scientific audiences, the ethical conduct of inquiry, critical thinking and the like. Moreover, we work collaboratively with academic and administrative units to create opportunities for students to engage in professional experiences such as internships, international experiences—teaching, research, and graduate study abroad ventures, and we are encouraging our students to pursue Fulbright fellowships and other international related opportunities.
