{Spring Graduate Workshops Set for Monday Nights}

Release Date: Friday, Jan 27, 2017
The UWC is excited to announce the schedule for our spring slate of Graduate Student Workshops. These hour-long events take place on Monday nights from 7 to 8 in Evans Library and offer Aggie grad students a chance to hone the communication skills they need to succeed at Texas A&M and beyond. These interactive and informal workshops focus specifically on communication tasks unique to grad students, such as the thesis/dissertation defense.

Registration for each workshop opens one week before the event. Grad students who attend have the opportunity to earn one Professional Development Unit toward the G.R.A.D. Aggies certificate program, offered by the Office of Graduate and Professional Development. Learn more about the program here.
