PhD+ Workshop Series

PhD+ is a monthly workshop series focused on issues of interest to all graduate students. Workshops expand graduate student training and provide space for asking questions you might not know to ask.

Join us in 2021-2022 for our sixth year of PhD+ workshops covering a range of topics from academic publishing, to possible career paths, and the future of university teaching (see past PhD+ workshops here).
