Professional Development Opportunities for Graduate Students

The Graduate College values the significance that professional development opportunities can bring to graduate students. Co-curricular activities enhance the graduate student experience with meaningful, academic, and professionally applied events. Our events are open to the entire BGSU community, but are specifically targeted to graduate students.

The co-curricular activities are particularly targeted to support graduate students in three key areas: instructional/teaching support (particularly helpful for TAs and TIs); Research support; and Professional preparation. 

If your department has an event that is open to the entire graduate community, please send information to for advertising.
