Register for Spring20 Doctoral Forum Retreat


The Doctoral Forum Retreat takes place each semester, usually on a Saturday morning. This is a valuable opportunity for doctoral students from different programs to interact with each other, discuss topics of interest and attend breakout sessions or workshops to learn valuable skills. Please join us for these events.



Get involved

At the Doctoral Forum Retreat students can give a presentation, host a breakout session, become a panelist (or host a panel!), and volunteer at the registration station.  We appreciate all ideas and creativity that will contribute to personal and professional growth for all!

Yes, I want to get involved!  

Share your thought with us!

I want to publish an article but how do I do that?  How do I find post-doctoral fellowship?  What is a comprehensive exam and how should I prepare for it?  We want to help!  Please share with us what you would like to learn in the Doctoral Forum Retreat.  Your need as a doctoral student and a scholar is important and we want to hear about it.
