The world offers opportunities and challenges today that were unimaginable even 10 years ago. The nature of work is changing and creating the need for people with vision, creativity, empathy, critical thinking, and the ability to work collaboratively across disciplinary lines and traditional skill sets. Consequently, contemporary graduate student professionalization must adapt to meet these changes. CGU’s Academic Professional Development collaboration provides the complementary curriculum you need to excel in your career. In addition to our individual program opportunities, our innovative collaborations complement and extend your academic program to integrate professional development into the core of your graduate education. We prepare you to be an agile and resilient graduate: better able to imagine and create a future of your own design.

The Academic Professional Development events and projects are provided by the Career Development Office (CDO), the Center for Writing and Rhetoric (CWR), the Preparing Future Faculty program (PFF), and the Transdisciplinary Studies program (TNDY).
