Communicate and Lead
Leading and communicating are critical if you want to make an impact in your field. Becoming an effective writer, speaker, teacher, advocate, mentor, and leader will enable you to take your expertise beyond the university.
Examples of ways to travel this pathway:
- Take on a role with a student organization in your program or Graduate Student Government
- Take workshops from the Graduate School Writing Center -- or apply to be a writing or oral communication fellow
- Offer a talk at GradTerp Exchange
- Participate in the Three-Minute Thesis contest
