Graduate Researcher Education and Training (GREAT) Series 

The Graduate Researcher Education and Training (GREAT) series features sessions on topics of importance to graduate student researchers that will help them build the skill set they need to be successful in their research endeavors. The series does not focus on technical research skills, but rather communication and management skills.

Registration for each session of the GREAT Series is required.   

There will be no formal assessments during the sessions, however, participants will be asked to complete an evaluation survey following the sessions to provide feedback, to gauge quality of each session, and to evaluate whether learning objectives were achieved.

The 2021-22 GREAT Series will be held on the last Tuesday of October, November and January - March and will take place 12-1 PM in Gateway I (60 Prescott Street) Room 1002. A free boxed lunch will be provided at the end of each session.

Finding and Critically Reading Research Literature - October 26, 2021 * Session moved to Zoom due to weather

Creating and Delivering a Great Research Seminar – November 30, 2021

The PhD, From Beginning to End, Careers and Beyond - January 25, 2022
