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

UC Workshops

UC academic departments and offices also provide workshops of relevance to graduate students. UC workshops are a collegial forum in which students can sharpen skills now while they prepare for their futures.

The Academic Writing Center offers free workshops to graduate students on important writing concepts. Workshops are typically one hour, and cover topics such as Creating an Outstanding CV, Composing a Literature Review, Starting Your Dissertation, and Overcoming Writer's Block. Visit AWC's Graduate Tutoring page for their workshop schedule and for graduate writing resources. 

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.
