UW Graduate School

Programming and Events

Due to concerns around novel coronavirus and in accordance with guidance from public health officials, Core Programs—Office of Graduate Student Affairs will schedule only virtual events and workshops until further notice.

Core Programs collaborates with university partners to provide professional development events for UW graduate students. We also offer student success programming for first generation and international graduate students. For up-to-date events information, please refer to Core Programs graduate student e-newsletters.
