Research skills and advanced course work are the foundation of a graduate education. Professional skills such as teaching, presenting at conferences, and understanding what constitutes research misconduct are also vitally important to becoming a scholar in the field. The Graduate School offers several web resources in support of these professional skills:
- About mentoring – learn about the benefits of a mentor, and how to find one
- Graduate School Communications Assistance Program (GS-CAP) – learn about resources to assist with written and oral/aural communication
- Online seminar archive – find links to handouts and taped seminars from the Graduate School
- Responsible conduct of research (RCR) training – learn about federal and University requirements and training opportunities
- Succeeding in Graduate School – learn the expectations of graduate school and find resources to assist students
Professional development seminars are regularly offered on campus; a selection are listed below. Please register to attend sessions sponsored by the Graduate School.
