Louis A. Simpson B60ABC, Louis A. Simpson B60ABC, Princeton, NJ, United States


Event Description

Your PhD experience encompasses much more than disciplinary training and expertise. Although PhD training primarily happens within departments, we encourage you to connect with the vast social and intellectual ecosystem at Princeton’s campus for professional development. Why? The broader campus provides rare access to people from different parts of the world who are motivated by a shared purpose: the pursuit of knowledge, creativity and critical thinking. Princeton’s expansive ecosystem (and the connections you can make here!) can provide you with the tools and agency to shape your PhD in ways that are aligned with your interests, informed by your experiences, and geared to equip you for multiple futures.

“Shape your PhD” is designed for G1 and G2 students who are interested in applying design thinking to their future planning. You’ll receive a free copy of A Field Guide to Graduate School: Uncovering the Hidden Curriculum(PUP, 2020) by Jessica M. Calarco.
