Who We Are
What We Do
This project seeks to update information on Graduate Professional Development Programs (PDP) in Canadian Public Universities as presented in the 2012 Report, Graduate Student Professional Development (GSPD): A Survey with Recommendations. To accomplish this, Phase 1 of the project gathered information about the scope and delivery of professional development for graduate students in universities across Canada. This information will be used to create an on-line catalogue and national inventory of the above that will be a resource for professional development administrators. Phase 2 of the project will begin in the winter of 2017, and will explore current university practices in Canada and elsewhere to assess the reach, value, and impact of graduate student PDPs, thus laying the groundwork to optimize and expand professional development opportunities for graduate students across Canada.
