Words of Wisdom
I don't know why I started writing. I don't know why anybody does it. Maybe they're bored, or failures at something else.
The UWC offers a series of workshops to help graduate students enhance their communication skills.
The weekly workshops, lead by UWC consultants and visiting speakers, are part of the G.R.A.D. Aggies Professional Development Certificate,
offered by OGAPS.
Students participating in the certificate program will be able to earn one Professional Development Unit (PDU) toward their certificate when they attend one of the workshops and successfully complete the required follow-up assignment, which will be posted on eCampus for up to one month following the workshop.
The workshops are held Mondays from 7 to 8 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters. We will meet in Evans Library, Room 612.
Registration for each workshop will typically open one week before the event.
