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.
