Event Description
GradFUTURES is pleased to launch “Shape your PhD”- an interdisciplinary learning cohort for G1 and G2 students to imagine, explore and visualize a holistic PhD experience focused on personal and professional growth. This learning cohort will meet on Thursdays, Sep 22-Nov 10, 6-7.30 pm.

Overview: A PhD experience can include much more than disciplinary training and expertise. Although PhD training primarily happens within departments, we encourage graduate students to connect with the vast social and intellectual ecosystem at Princeton’s campus for professional development. The broader campus provides rare access to people from different parts of the world who are motivated by a shared purpose: the pursuit of knowledge, creativity and critical thinking. The rich campus ecosystem can also provide you with the tools and agency to shape your PhD in ways that align with your unique interests, prior experiences and future aspirations.

You will have the opportunity to reflect, learn and discuss:
- Threading purpose, meaning and impact into the PhD experience
- Building a global and multidisciplinary community
- Informing and broadening the scope of your research ideas
- Cultivating systematic & improvised networks for collaboration, expanding
imagination and fostering creativity
- Visualizing and designing your optimal PhD experience
