  • ETD Formatting Workshops 鉁忥笍

    Weekly, TBD

    Held virtually via Microsoft Teams. View Workshop Dates.

    Join Workshops

    These are meant to help with ETD-specific formatting.  

    The Weekly Formatting Workshops are different from the ETD Process Workshop which is only held once a semester.

    What's the difference? 
    The ETD Process Workshop covers all aspects of the process from Registration to Review and should be attended by all Graduate students completing a Thesis or Dissertation. Weekly Formatting Workshops cover formatting only and are not a substitute for the ETD Process Workshop. Drop in for help with document formatting.

  • National Postdoc Association SmartSkills


    NPA Smartskills have recurring sessions every 4th Tuesday of the month at 3PM.

    Many postdocs wonder about the pathway into industry without ways to learn the truth about the journey.

    Join leaders from industry as they share their thoughts on the current industry postdoc landscape, discuss misconceptions about postdocs and careers in industry, clarify differences between industry and academic postdocs and positions, offer recommendations to postdocs seeking to enter industry positions, and provide insights on future trends that may affect postdocs in industry.
    This is intended as a collaborative discussion so bring your questions!
