GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts (GLCs) are a series of interdisciplinary seminars and co-curricular learning opportunities that bring together students, alumni, faculty, and industry partners to focus on current societal, industry, and/or global trends. There are generally seven or more sessions (an hour or more in length) with optional pre-reading and reflection activities. While each learning cohort is unique, most offer an experiential component such as a site visit, shadowing opportunity, immersive project, or internship/fellowship.
Based on the success of previous years’ learning cohorts and graduate students' demand, the 2020-21 academic year line-up will include the Ethics of AI, American Higher Education, Venture Capital and Startups, and Drug Discovery & Pharma-- as well as the launch of four new cohorts focused on Inclusive Leadership, Science & Policy, Sustainability, and Data Science.
