Professional formation is about not only learning a profession and preparing to enter the workforce, but also the ongoing work of advancing effective solutions to the world’s problems through original research and constructive debate within those professions. Graduate students have a unique opportunity to inform and structure those public debates as they enter the workforce and lessen polarization and extremism in the process.

Please join us for two events in September:
