CareerWell—Professional Development Participant
“Professional development resources and programming supplemented the discipline-specific training I had in my department, and it was incredibly valuable. Thank you very much for making it possible.”
—Anneliese Long; Ph.D. student; Department of Anthropology
Diversity and Student Success Participant
“I cannot imagine completing my doctoral program without the support, community, and resources I received from Diversity and Student Success. Their programs have been vital for me as I successfully applied for fellowships and grants and as I tackled the milestones needed to finish my degree. I am forever grateful for DSS.”
—Brionca Taylor; Ph.D. candidate; Department of Sociology
Summer Research Fellowship Recipient
“Without the funding, it would have been more difficult to graduate this year, because I would have presumably had to teach over the summer. Instead, I’ll now be able to devote more time to writing, collecting data and analyzing data.”
—John West, Ph.D. candidate; Department of Psychology and Neuroscience
