Course Description

The objective of this course is to assist graduate students adapting to the Stanford environment in terms of academic, psychosocial, financial, and career issues and how these relate to diversity, minority services, resources, policies and procedures. Presentations will be made by guest faculty, advanced graduate students, campus administrators, and the dean’s office and will include the Stanford Writing Center, Graduate Life Office, Career Development Center, Center for Teaching and Learning, and Faculty Development.

Graduate students in all of Stanford's seven Schools are invited to participate.
