Graduate students find themselves at the meeting point between theory and practice. It's a place where they can teach other students and find practical ways to contribute to improving our world.
They find these opportunities in several places at the university, from our tutorial system which gives graduate students valuable opportunities to gain teaching experience to research assistant jobs which provide practical lab experience, to co-op programs.
Wherever they work and volunteer, our graduate students begin to build the professional experience and contacts which will serve them throughout their careers and make the personal connections which will enrich them throughout their lives.
