Professional Development

An important component of graduate school is preparing for the workplace. CGPDI is committed to assisting graduate students in developing the professional skills needed to launch and build successful careers inside or outside academia. While you are immersed in academic courses and research, CGPDI encourages you to also take advantage of professional development workshops and seminars and other helpful resources to build complementary and valuable skills for your future career.
