EDGE Workshop Series: Mental Health, Wellness and the Grad School Journey

Prioritizing your mental well-being while on the PhD journey is of the utmost importance but can be challenging. You are invited to lunch with professionals from across campus to hear them share their insights for how you can prioritize your mental and emotional well-being.

These questions and more will be on the table for discussion. We'll also ask you to share your own experiences and strategies for finding balance.

We have invited guest speakers to share their insights on how you can prioritize and maintain healthy habits as a doctoral student.
