Juggling and Tightrope Walking: Grad School Meets Parenthood

March 11, 2016

Does your life sometimes feel like a circus, complete with the sticky mess?

We want to take this opportunity to discuss challenges (you're not alone!), strategies, and resources (there are ways to make it easier!) unique to grad student parents. Our conversation will focus on and emphasize the writing involved in graduate studies; however, other topics such as time management, conference attendance and presentations may also be discussed.

Harbour Centre Session:

  •         Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 12:00pm - 2:00pm
  •         Room 7400
  •         Register here

Burnaby Session:

  •         Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 3:00pm - 4:30pm
  •         Bennett Library, Room 7200
  •         Register here

This is a "family friendly" event, so please feel free to bring your wee ones.  This workshop is also open to parents of older children (we need your insights!) and expectant parents.
