The Graduate Student Development Series offers graduate students the opportunity to learn strategies for personal and professional growth in one-hour sessions facilitated by Miami University faculty and/or staff. In Fall 2021, sessions occur on most Fridays in King Library (with the option to join either in-person or remotely through Zoom). Students who attend 8 or more sessions in a semester will receive a “Commitment to Professional Development” recognition. We hope to see you there!
