The Grad Student Professional Development Series is for graduate students at the four participating institutions and is intended to provide networking opportunities and training in skills beyond disciplinary knowledge that are essential for achieving career readiness and professional success post-graduation.
Each university will host one session this academic year online, and in some cases, in person as well. Graduate students from any of the host institutions may attend any of the events. All times are Pacific Standard Time.

Meet your writing goals this winter by bringing colleagues together and joining the Grad Writing Group Challenge!
The challenge is for you to form a peer-to-peer writing group and meet with them at least four times in February.
Whether you are forming a group to work on your thesis or dissertation, grant or job applications, or coursework, we hope these meetings motivate you to write. We created a quick start guide to help get your group going, including how to give writing feedback.
All registered groups who complete the challenge will be entered to win a prize.
Ready to write? Read the quick start guide and register your group on our website.
On those pages, you can find graduation timelines and required tasks such as submitting your program of study, diploma application and final exam scheduling forms. Avoid last-minute surprises and set yourself up for a smooth finish to your well-earned degree!
Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
