Graduate Affairs Workshop

The African American Studies Graduate Affairs workshops bring together Princeton University graduate students for programming related to mentoring, advising, and support in the academic professionalization process. Workshops in the past have ranged from discussions about finding success as a woman in the academy, to exploring common pitfalls in fellowship application processes. The workshops are offered as a means to cultivate a space in which students from all corners of the University can network, collaborate, and communicate with each other about research, course work, and professional goals.  In short, this is a unit that affirms and celebrates interdisciplinary scholarship and coalition building in Princeton’s graduate community.

If you would like to be added to the Graduate Affairs’ emailing list, please send an email to Dionne Worthy at dworthy@princeton.edu with this request.
