GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts

GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts (GLC) are co-curricular learning opportunities for graduate students that are geared to broadening graduate student professional and career development. Developed and sponsored by the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, GLCs are interdisciplinary cohorts of 10-25 graduate students who meet throughout the academic year to explore a special topic.

GLCs build on and reinforce each student’s graduate training while drawing on their content knowledge to inform the cohort’s investigation of the topic. GLCs typically also include at least one experiential component, such as a site visit, conference presentation or internship opportunity.
