The Graduate College has built a summer workshop series to help ASU staff and faculty take advantage of the resources we provide to enable student success. Whether your graduate program needs to update its handbook to be more equitable, inclusive and student-centered, wants to make the most of Graduate College’s student accounts tools or would like to make better use of student information, the Graduate College Summer Workshop Series has got you covered. The workshop series is an addition to the Building Networked Communities meeting series to engage with the ASU graduate community of staff and faculty who support graduate students and programs at ASU. 

  • Work with the Graduate College’s Graduate Student Advisory Group in an interactive workshop on creating inclusive handbooks.

  • Learn the best practices for graduate student funding from the experts. 

  • Learn how Graduate College data and analytics tools can help you make evidence-based decisions using student data.
