Graduate Student Success Workshop Series

 

GRADUATE STUDENT SUCCESS WORKSHOPS

The Graduate Student Success workshops are workshops sponsored by The Office of Graduate Studies, The RIT Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services and Graduate Departments across the university.  All of these workshops offer ways to become more successful as a Graduate Student.  Please note the time and location for each workshop since they are offered in different locations with different start times.  If you have any questions please contact Rauncie Ryan at LRRGLA@rit.edu

Are you a Graduate student who would like to teach a workshop?  Do you have a speciality that you think would help other students?  Contact Rauncie to set up a time and become a part of our student success workshop series. 

Workshops are limited to a specific number of students.  Please register.  If you register we ask that you please attend because there are only a certain number of seats for each workshop.  Please click on each workshop offering to register for it.
