Professional Development

Graduate students have latitude in defining and developing areas of expertise, yet the demonstration of mastery often involves some tried-and-true steps. The Graduate School encourages students to develop an Individual Development Plan to map out career goals and the relevant steps, or building blocks, of their professional development.

Publishing discoveries, interpretations, or new works is another measure of your development. Graduate students are welcome to work with peer mentors in the Writing Center. The Graduate School is pleased to celebrate and acknowledge publishing success, please email is your accomplishments at
