Graduate students sit at a round table and talk at a workshop.

The Graduate School offers the Graduate Student Workshop Series, which supplements a student's academic training by providing brief, specific skill-building sessions on professional and personal development. UC faculty, alumni, staff and community partners act as topical experts and present on such topics as oral presentation, credit, budgeting and nonacademic career development. 

Upcoming Workshops, 2018–19

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