Almost every department has Professional Development meetings where students gain valuable knowledge and skills on a variety of topics to help them develop into independent researchers and teachers. Considering that no single mentor can provide all the different needs and requirements of each student for achieving their individual goals, Pro Dev meetings give students access to a larger pool of qualified professionals who can greatly expand the quality and quantity of the education experience.
