The University Libraries offers many research-oriented workshops that may be used to meet requirements of the Preparing Future Faculty and Preparing Future Professionals Certificates. Workshops are intended to provide opportunities for graduate students and postdocs to develop the following five core competencies: Communication, Teaching, Scholarly Development (advanced knowledge and skills), Professionalism (leadership, ethics, transferable skills), and Career Development. Each workshop listed below has one or more competency labels. Workshops are also intended to be appropriate at one or more stages of graduate study or postdoctoral experience: Early stage, Middle stage, Late stage, or All stages. Students and postdoctoral scholars may attend workshops more than once and during any stage. The labels simply provide suggested attendance time-frames and core competencies. Some of our workshops are conducted every other year.
