Strategies for Success in Graduate Studies

Strategies for Success in Graduate Studies

In collaboration with the Graduate Student Center, our learning specialists have developed Strategies for Success in Graduate Studies to support graduate and professional students as they adapt to online learning. The sessions will be discussion-based and facilitated by a learning specialist from the Weingarten Center. This fall, all of our workshops will be virtual and students will receive Zoom meeting links after they register.
