Academic Professional Development
The Series is a thematic, semester long strand of courses offered concurrently for a selected interdisciplinary cohort. The series will involve an orientation, six to eight 2 hour meetings based upon the theme, and a concluding session. The cohort meets over a 10 – 12 week span beginning a few weeks after the start of the semester and ending a few weeks before the end of the semester so that participants can focus on their semester coursework.
Cohorts are composed of 15 to 20 currently enrolled students who are selected via a competitive open application process. In addition to the benefits of an interdisciplinary cohort experience and thematic series content, participants may also be eligible for a one-time funding award, to be applied towards a conference presentation, supplemental research, or a professional development activity.
The Seminars are singular, 2-hour offerings reflecting thematic sessions presented in the Series. The seminars are stand-alone sessions having no requirement for concurrent enrollment.
The Panel Presentations are singular, 2-hour offerings, bringing together a wide-range of panelists with thematic expertise drawing on their personal and professional experiences.
