Graduate school can be daunting. It’s often an extended exercise in not being told about the things you’d better know. The path to success is seldom smooth nor clear, populated by busy people and opaque processes. Alas, here is a forum for graduate students to hear from their senior colleagues about challenges in their academic journeys and how they overcame them. We asked an interdisciplinary group of these busy people to devote two hours of their time to answering your questions. Join us to gain insight from their hindsight! Refreshments will be served.

Microagressions are everyday verbal or nonverbal environmental slights, snubs, and insults that, more often than not, are subconsciously committed by individuals with a privileged, and/or dominant culture background. Elizabeth Rohr, Program Coordinator with the University's Barger Leadership Institute will facilitate a group discussion, as well as small group activities that will focus on identifying and addressing the role and impact that microaggressions have in and on our daily lives and beyond.
