Vice Dean for Innovation Rodney D. Priestley has been a strong supporter of, and participant in, GradFUTURES Professional Development programming, including the *Star Lessons in Leadership Series.
“Graduate student professional development helps students build important professional skills which serve as a catalyst for interdisciplinary collaboration, creativity and innovation. By cultivating connections between our graduate students, faculty, alumni and partners within Princeton’s Innovation ecosystem, we are building onramps to a diverse array of career paths including entrepreneurship.
I have been very impressed with the rollout of the GradFUTURES program, and the opportunities that it has provided for graduate students to receive professional development training, to network, and to think more broadly about their future. I, myself, have enjoyed many of the activities!”
