The first Grad Minds event of the year, Navigating the Graduate Student Experience at UofT, will take place on Thursday, October 8th at 5:30pm in Room 3153 of the Medical Sciences Building. Registration is required at www.ntse.eventbrite.ca
Navigating the Graduate Student Experience at UofT (#navigatingUofT) is a panel discussion meant to raise awareness around the challenges, barriers, and opportunities graduate students encounter throughout their studies at the University of Toronto. This student-driven event provides graduate students with an opportunity to participate in an open dialogue with U of T staff, students, and the community. Student panelists will speak out about their experience with accessing student support services, seeking support from their supervisors/faculty members, and finding a sense of community. Come out to this event to celebrate the success and progress the university has made to date to better the student experience, AND to highlight areas that need improvement. We want to hear from students how the University experience can be made better, and how can support services be improved specifically for graduate students. If you sought any support services from the University, please come to this event and be part of the discussion on improving support services for graduate students. Grad Minds also encourages students to engage in the question and answer period using the hash tag #navigatingUofT.
