These pillars, informed from literature on key skills graduate students need to be successful in their personal and professional lives, are designed to ensure that all workshops, events, and professional/career development opportunities are user-friendly, relevant, and intentional. Each opportunity falls under at least one of these pillars. Students wanting to refine or brush up on a particular skill set have an easy way to know which opportunities will be most relevant and useful to them.


As a Catholic school in the Jesuit/Ignatian tradition, Seattle Prep students at the time of graduation have matured as persons-emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, spiritually-to a level that they are able to accept responsibility for their own growth. Ideally, Seattle Prep graduates have begun to reach out in their development, seeking opportunities to expand their minds, imagination, feelings, and religious/spiritual consciousness.

By graduation, Seattle Prep students will exhibit a mastery of those academic skills and understandings that are required for success in advanced education. While many of these requirements are subject matter specific, students will also have developed an array of academic skills that cut across disciplines and which go beyond requirements for college entrance. Our students will have begun to see the need for intellectual integrity in their personal quest for religious truth, spiritual experience, and in their response to issues of social justice.

By graduation the Seattle Prep student will have a basic knowledge of the major doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church. The graduate, whether Catholic or of another sacred tradition, will also have examined his or her own religious feelings and beliefs in order to choose a fundamental orientation toward God and to establish a relationship with their religious tradition and/or community.

By the time of graduation, Seattle Prep students are well on their way to establishing their own identity. Our graduates are also on the threshold of being able to move beyond self-interest or self-centeredness in relationships with significant others. In other words, they are beginning to be able to risk deeper levels of relationship in which they can disclose self and accept the mystery of another person and cherish that person.

Seattle Prep students at graduation have achieved considerable knowledge of the many needs of local and wider communities and are preparing for the day when they will take a place in these communities as competent, concerned, responsible members. Our graduates have begun to acquire skills and motivation necessary to live as persons for others. Although this quality will have begun by graduation, it will come to full maturity in adulthood.

Grad Slam is a UC-sponsored competition designed to showcase graduate student research for a general audience in three-minute talks. Think mini-Ted Talks. Entrants compete in preliminary rounds on their UC campus, with prizes awarded at each stage of the selection process.

We encourage anyone from the entire Berkeley community to attend this exciting virtual event celebrating graduate student research. The winner from this event will compete in the UC-wide competition in early May.

Professional Development: Grad Slam is a unique opportunity for graduate students to practice pitching original research to general audiences. To prepare their talks, participants have the opportunity to attend workshops and receive one-on-one coaching to develop oratorical skills, dynamic deliveries, and compelling content when presenting their academic research.

Networking: Through Grad Slam, participants will meet and engage with a diverse body of UC Berkeley staff, faculty, graduate students, and valued associates (donors, alumni, media, politicians, community members, and more).

The Graduate Division oversees graduate admissions, fellowships, grants, academic employment, preparation for teaching, mentoring activities, professional development, academic progress and degree milestones.

Dozens of issues dominate the life and mind of a graduate student. From relationships to research, time management to financial management, it seems that there are often too many components to juggle. Surviving this multiplicity of priorities requires an action plan and fierce intentionality. Browse our library of resources and discover new approaches to navigating the challenges of the grad life.

Lisa Kelly leads the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching & Learning (CIRTL) program at UI. She has worked in graduate student professional development for 5 years and leads workshops and consultations on effective teaching, communicating research, networking, and preparing for academic and non-academic jobs. Lisa holds a PhD from Northwestern University in the Interdisciplinary PhD in Theatre and Drama program where her research focused on nineteenth century celebrity culture - how performers interacted in public and private spaces, created identity and participated in social activism. Lisa also holds an MFA in Theatre Pedagogy from Virginia Commonwealth University. In her spare time Lisa is a director, stage manager, and dramaturg for several Corridor theatre companies.

Elizabeth Savelkoul, PhD is a Graduate Fellowships Specialist at the University of Iowa Graduate College. Her doctorate focused on evolutionary biology, comparing meiosis genes across the genome sequences of numerous fungi. She now uses a synthesis of her science background and interdisciplinary interests to provide writing feedback, presentations, and resources for both STEM and non-STEM graduate students and postdocs about fellowships and careers. Outside of work, Elizabeth also plays piano for various community theatre productions in the Coralville and Iowa City area.

If you are not a USMA graduate you can print out this fillable form before you arrive and bring it with you to the Visitor Control Center (VCC) to apply for your badge. They will have forms at the VCC, however this will shorten your wait time. You will need a form for each individual in your party. The Visitor Control Center is open daily from 6am to 10pm.

Each student will have access to mentorship opportunities to complement their departmental academic adviser(s) and the Director of Graduate Studies throughout the first year, including staff and peer community members. GSP students participate in pods, which consist of 5-6 first year students led by an advanced graduate student who serves as a Peer Mentor. Pods are typically multidisciplinary, and provide opportunities for students to enlarge their peer networks and engage in community-building activities throughout the academic year. In addition, GSP hosts community dinners, professional development events, and other social events to help build community within and across cohorts.

The Carolina F1RSTS office supports undergraduate first-generation college students. Their office welcomes faculty, staff, and graduate students to become Carolina F1RSTS Advocates to serve as resources. Advocates trainings are offered throughout the academic year.

This attribute is None by default and becomes a Tensor the first time a call tobackward() computes gradients for self.The attribute will then contain the gradients computed and future calls tobackward() will accumulate (add) gradients into it.

Grad SLAM is an annual competitive public speaking event that gives graduate students the chance to showcase the impact of your research. Bring your work to the forefront for a live audience to share what you already know, that your research is cutting-edge, breaking barriers, and has the potential to change the world.

The Grad Buzz is delivered to all enrolled graduate students every other week on Wednesdays, with the exception of Institute holidays and in November, December, and the summer (May to July) when it will be sent once per month. Read the news/event submission tips. 041b061a72
