Professional Development

Students currently enrolled in the doctoral program are eligible for professional development support. This includes travel funds for conference travel, as well as professional development funding to support travel to and/or enrollment in courses or programs not offered locally. The Associate Head of Graduate Studies issues a call for travel requests at the start of the academic year. Students submit the request as soon as they know they are scheduled to present, and work with the business office on arranging travel requests and reimbursements. The Associate Head of Graduate Studies issues the call for professional development funding in the spring semester. This support is competitively awarded based on students’ research productivity and the degree to which the opportunity will develop the student’s research program.

Students are encouraged to speak to area or department administration about career development and professional opportunities.
