Professional Development Workshops

Developing professional skills is an essential component of a graduate student's career. Whether it's speaking at a conference, learning how to network with other academics, or preparing your first vitae, we realize there's some essential skills that may not be taught in your discipline. We've put together our Professional Development Workshop Series to help you out.

If you have any suggestions or feedback for workshop ideas, feel free to get in touch with us.

The PREP Model

    We've based our workshop selections around the PREP model, coined by Michigan State University. The acronym embodies four areas that we believe are essential for your success.

    • Planning
      Graduate school isn't easy. Proper planning however can dramatically reduce stress and anxiety and get you on the road to achieve your academic goals.
    • Resilience
      Being resilient is an important trait for managing both your personal and professional lives.
    • Engagement
      This is a must to be involved in the academic world around you, to take advantage of opportunities and attain your goals.
    • Professionalism
      This is a core competency of any graduate student.
