With all the time you put into your academics and research, how much time do you spend planning how to leverage your experience into a career?

Writing Group has expended its mission to support students working on any writing project (not just the thesis/dissertation)! GSGA’s Writing Group allows graduate students to meet with their peers on a weekly basis to work on their writing project—such as course papers, journal articles, and the dissertation/ thesis—and to get encouragement and feedback. For Fall Semester, please check the schedule for times and locations.
The UC Office of Research is pleased to announce that the ability to search for core facilities, test labs, centers and institutes is now available through the Research Directory at research.uc.edu/directory.
