All graduate students are encouraged to attend a special Graduate and Professional Student Professional Development (GPSPD) session titled “Strategizing for Life after the PhD” with guest speaker Renã AS Robinson, PhD, founder of Purposeful PhD. The session will take place over Zoom on October 29, 11:30-1:00 pm.

The primary objective of this interactive workshop is to provide guidance and tools for current and incoming graduate students to establish intentional practices to operate with purpose as they pursue their PhDs and to develop strategies early in their journey to plan for future careers after the degree. Upon completion of this workshop participants will:

  • Gain a better understanding of the purpose of a PhD and expectations for graduate training.
  • Develop a mindset and productivity plan for maintaining high levels of performance until program completion.
  • Create a strategic plan to maximize benefits and resources during graduate training towards a successful career after the PhD.
