Professional Development

GSC strives to provide informational meetings, workshops and forums that enhance the professional development of graduate students. The council promotes interdisciplinary activities to enrich graduate students' education beyond their own disciplines. The council also sends out information on various seminars held across campus every week to the council members to be shared with their graduate student groups. Many events are also archived and available online.

K-State graduate students who attend at least five professional development events hosted by GSC during the 2014-2015 academic year will be eligible to receive a GSC Professional Development Certificate.

If you have any questions, contact the GSC officers at egsc@k-state.edu.
