Words of Wisdom

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.

— Mark Twain


We offer workshops to help graduate students enhance their communication skills as part of the G.R.A.D. Aggies Professional Development Certificate, offered by the Graduate School. 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.

The workshops are held during the fall and spring semesters.
