Graduate Student Engagement

While most University operations will be virtual this fall semester, we have been working diligently to create opportunities for you to get connected and engaged with everything USF has to offer. From leadership development sessions to career development workshops, the options for enhancing your experience as a Don are abundant. 

Throughout the semester, you will be receiving the Dons Connect newsletter which will contain information about upcoming virtual events and opportunities. You can expect to see this in your USF email account. 

Below is a list of engagement options designed specifically for graduate students.
