Affinity Community Resource Week—First Generation Students

September 20, 2023, 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT

Grad School 101 invites you to attend our inaugural Affinity Community Resource Week!

The University has so much to offer you! We want to make sure that you know about some of the resources that are available.

Our Affinity Community Resource Week offers a week’s worth of panels devoted to resources here at UofM that exist for some of our affinity communities in Rackham. Each day, we will focus on a resource (or resources) related to a different affinity group within the Rackham community. The featured panelists will be individuals who work in the departments/organizations where this resource can be accessed.

Did you know that creating an action plan can help you achieve your goals and engage in conversations with mentors to get the resources and support you need?

Join us for this interactive session to develop or refine your own action plan—often referred to as an individual development plan (IDP). We will use the free ImaginePhD platform to map out your program, professional development, and career goals. Participants will create a time-based action plan using the “SMART” planning method and leave with specific ideas about how to hold themselves accountable and how to share their goals to get the maximum benefit from this planning. This workshop is suitable for all disciplines—STEM, humanities, social sciences, etc.
