GradMAP: Planning for Success

grad map

Graduate school is full of right-now expectations (papers, exams) and long-term hopes (thesis or dissertation, a great job). But it can be tough to bridge the gaps between today and someday. To make the most of your time in graduate school, it is crucial that you set medium-term goals and make plans to achieve them. Whether you hope to publish in a journal, land an internship, or teach your own course, the best way to get from where you are to where you want to be is to make a map and stick to it.

In this hands-on workshop, students use the GradMAP Professional Development Process to set 6-12-month goals, identify skills needed to achieve those goals, and make concrete plans to develop in those areas by undertaking specific activities.
