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 2019-2020 for our fourth year of PhD+ workshops covering a range of topics from academic publishing, to public fellowships, and the future of university teaching.
