Demystifying Graduate School 10:45AM – 12:15PM

Demystifying Graduate School and Tips to Conquering Imposter Syndrome

Location: Alumni House Ballroom

In order for students to be successful in the Graduate School application process, they must understand the “hidden curriculum of academia” (Estein et. Al., 2022) including, what skills are needed for a competitive application, and where to find funding for research assistantships and fellowships. This workshop provides important information for demystifying the application process. In addition, the presentation seeks to acknowledge how intersectionality,  first generation and other identities can impact feelings of imposter syndrome and affect students’ journey.  Lastly, the presentation will address institutional supports that can support academic success and a successful transition to Graduate School.

Presented by Dr. Tiffany Baffour, Associate Professor, College of Social Work; Associate Dean, Graduate Equity, Diversity & Inclusion, The Graduate School
