Interdisciplinary Learning Cohorts

GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts are interdisciplinary and co-curricular opportunities that bring together students, alums, faculty, and industry partners to explore diverse professional pathways and 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.

“Through my participation in the GradFUTURES Mentorship program and GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts, I have gained a robust professional network, learned more about how to advertise my skillset, and built collaborative research/working relationships within and outside academia. The most meaningful impact in my life, by far, is the psychological "switch" that happened after I started participating in GradFUTURES: I learned that there are opportunities for growth, collaboration, and personal entrepreneurship wherever you look, and often all you have to do is have the initiative to find resources and the confidence to ask.”

“I had the great fortune to be part of two GradFUTURES Learning Cohorts, 'American Higher Education' and 'Tell Me More.' The rich and expansive conversations among graduate students, faculty, and administrators about the history and current state of higher education as well as the different ways scholars can communicate were invaluable. These experiences pushed and challenged my thinking and greatly impacted my work for the better.”
