Mission Possible: SFU Grad School Edition

Professional Development Mission

Professional Development is everything outside of the classroom that supports your success, both academically and non-academically, now and in the future.

Just like there are many opportunities for professional development in graduate school, there are also many ways to earn points in this mission! 

ATTEND A WORKSHOP
2 points/workshop completed

Attend any workshop! Here are some suggestions to get you started:

Track Your Points

Create an Attend a Workshop sub-folder in your Mission Possible folder in SFU Vault.

Upload a screenshot of some aspect of your workshop(s) to your Attend a Workshop folder.

SHARE YOUR STUDENT EXPERIENCE JOURNEY
5 POINTS

Everyone’s journey through graduate school is different, and there are many things outside your academic program that make up that journey.

Using the wayfinder to help guide you, map out the journey you have taken throughout your time as a grad student at SFU so far (or, if you’re new to SFU, map out a potential path you might like to take). 

Be creative! There is no wrong way to complete this mission. Maybe it’s a list, a hand drawn map, or something in between - just like your journey through grad school, your map will be unique.

Track Your Points

Create a Student Experience Journey sub-folder in your Mission Possible folder in SFU Vault.

Upload your journey to your Student Experience Journey for the possiblity of being featured on our website.
