The Graduate Student Development Series offers graduate students the opportunity to learn strategies for personal and professional growth in one-hour sessions facilitated by Miami University faculty and/or staff. In Spring 2022, sessions occur on most Fridays (with the option to join either in-person or remotely through Zoom). Students who attend 6 or more sessions in a semester will receive a “Commitment to Professional Development” recognition and/or attend 4 or more "Career Development Academy" sessions (indicated by *) and receive a Career Development Academy Completion Certificate. We hope to see you there!
