EDGE Lunch Workshop: Faculty Perspectives: Balancing the Multiple Demands & Expectations of Graduate School

EDGE Mentor and Fellow
Tuesday, April 21, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Facilitated Remotely via Zoom

Optimizing your graduate school experience is all about striking a good balance between the demands of coursework, TAing/teaching, and research and/or finding an advisor. It can be difficult to figure out where to put your time and effort in the face of multiple demands and expectations. Especially in your first years, you may wonder how to decode what's important from what's urgent and how to know if you are 'on the right' track to making good progress. 

Join us for a candid conversation with Stanford faculty about striking a good balance between the many demands placed on you in your first years of grad school.
