Graduate Student Workshops

The Graduate School offers the Graduate Student Workshop Series, which is designed to supplement a student's academic training by providing brief, specific skill-building sessions that focus on professional and personal development. UC faculty, alumni, staff and community partners act as topical experts presenting on such topics as oral presentation, credit and budgeting, and nonacademic career development. UC academic departments and offices also provide workshops of relevance to graduate students. UC workshops provides a collegial forum in which students can sharpen skills now while they prepare for their futures.

The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L) offers an array of experiential workshops and learning modules tailored to the needs of graduate teaching assistants, faculty, and others interested in improving their teaching.

University Libraries offer workshops on both East and West Campus that provide tools to support graduate students in their research.

You can download powerpoint presentations, handouts and other materials from previous workshops by going to the Past Workshops page.
