Graduate Student Orientation
The Ongoing Program is designed to accommodate graduate students on a first-time assistantship who were unable to attend or fully complete the August orientation week or are starting an assistantship in the Spring. All students receiving an assistantship are required to complete 10 session hours of GSO programming. The Ongoing Program allows students to tailor their individual professional development. Professional development opportunities are offered by The Center for Teaching and Learning, The Women's Center, Career Services, Student Money Management and many other areas across campus.
Participants must complete 10 session hours. Three of these hours will be the online training modules "Preventing Workplace Harassment" and "Preventing Employment Discrimination". You must also complete the Diversity Training and Flashpoint: Recognizing and Caring for Individuals in Distress videos, as part of a requirement for all university employees. This is available through the BGSU dvss video viewing system that students can access through their MyBGSU account.
The ongoing sessions may be a combination of live workshops and/or seminars and videos. You will select what you use to maximize your professional development.
One half of your session units must be completed and your Attendance Verification Forms received in the GSO office no later than the first Monday following Spring Break or the Monday following Fall Break depending on the semester of participation. All session hours must be completed and your Attendance Verification Forms received by GSO no later than Friday of the last week of classes, before finals week.
