Programming for Yates and Provost Fellows

The Albert C. Yates Fellowship Program and the Provost Graduate Fellowship Program join forces throughout the academic year to provide community and professional development programming for all Yates and Provost fellows. 

These meetings and events bring new fellows into contact with more senior Yates and Provost fellows, provide professional development workshops, and allow fellows to make connections and network beyond their graduate program/department. 

First year fellows are required to attend the monthly professional development meetings, unless they have a class conflict. All second year and beyond Yates and Provost fellows are invited and encourage to attend the monthly meetings. Community-building events are held once a semester.
