GradFUTURES Forum 2021: Free professional development conference for PhDs, April 26-30

This week-long graduate student professional development conference hosted by Princeton will include sessions and speakers covering: national best practices; ways to pivot and recalculate; bespoke immersive experiences and learning cohorts; mentorship; and innovation and entrepreneurship– all designed to provide practical advice and meet the unique interests of graduate students.

The theme of the 2021 GradFUTURES Forum is “Broadening the Impact of the Ph.D. Within and Beyond the Academy” and the goal is to accelerate connections among and between graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni, and leaders from the academic, public, and private sectors. The Forum prepares graduate students to make meaningful contributions within diverse fields of endeavor in ways that expand knowledge, accelerate discovery, and serve humanity.

We are delighted to welcome colleagues from other graduate institutions and to share this content as part of a national movement to expand graduate student-centric professional development and career diversity.
