What students are saying about the Grad Café
"The virtual grad cafe chat was great because it was a friendly environment to talk about both academic and non-academic topics. The 1 hour chat was not just a nice break from studying but also it was awesome to socialize safely despite COVID!" - Mason
"Grad Café provides a rare opportunity to talk to other USask graduate students directly. I’ve enjoyed it so much and have met several grad students from outside of my program. I highly recommend it as a way to connect and chat with others." - Adiam
Various units at USask organize events and provide resources and services to support the professional development and well-being of graduate students. Please check back often as the following list continues to grow!
Transitioning to Grad School
Teaching, either as a lab instructor, class instructor, or teaching assistant, can be intimidating to graduate students or Postdocs who have no prior teaching experience. The GMCTL offers workshops, non-credit courses, and resources for graduate students and Postdocs who are new to teaching and who already have some experience but want to learn more.
Calling all Champions
The Grad Hub onboarding platform was born from an orientation concept taken to the next level. In a thematic approach of centralized and synthesized information, our concept is to reach graduate students with relevant information when they need to know regardless of what stage they are in their program.
