The Graduate School and UConn is committed to you and offers countless ways for you to engage in activities to help you grow personally, academically, and professionally. Regardless of your place on the timeline toward degree completion, field of study, or intended or hopeful career pathway, opportunities abound for you to grow.
To make it a little easier to organize and prioritize between the endless choices, The Graduate School has developed and recommends that you follow the ICP FRAMEWORK (Individualized Planning/Career Management/Professional Growth). Just click on the tab above to learn more.
We will do our best to bring all these opportunities to your attention, but many times the opportunities are happening outside our knowledge or by our partners across campus, the state, or the country – so look far and wide – no doubt you will find terrific ways to challenge and advance yourself. Whether you are interested in developing leadership skills, your financial acumen, or lab management skills, learn how to write for an intended audience, or improve your interpersonal communications skills (to name a few) you can find a workshop at UConn!
It is up to you to participate – but we will make sure you have many opportunities.
