Professional development

Out of the classroom and into the world

The Graduate School promotes career exploration and provides a range of professional development opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars preparing for the future with a diverse set of interests and professional goals. 

Graduate and Postdoctoral Professional Development (GPPD) seminar series

These seminars cover a range of topics that are of interest to trainees not traditionally covered in the classroom. This annual series is organized by nationally recognized core competencies, and provides opportunities for micro-credentialing to highlight skills and experiences that can be less visible on transcripts and standard job applications.
