Graduate degrees prepare you for multiple career paths. Join Dr. Taniecea Mallery (Director of Equity, Diversity, and Community Engagement at UL) and Dr. Josh Caffrey (Stuller, Inc.) for a candid discussion about alternatives to academic careers. How do you work to broaden your career prospects? What alt-AC paths are out there? And, of course, how and when do you have “The Conversation” with your faculty advisor?Part of being a grad student and a scholar means being a responsible researcher. But what does “research compliance” really mean? This session will offer an introduction to knowing how to protect the integrity of your research and scholarship. What approvals are required when we collect, manage, share and own data; when working with human subjects or animals; when conflicts of interest arise; and when we publish? Grad Students in most programs need to apply for and demonstrate research compliance; there’s no way around it. Come and find out more. Co-sponsored with the Office of Research. Lunch will be provided.
