What are Doctoral Roundtables?

Our Doctoral Roundtable series is a supportive, informal, roundtable discussion forum led by our Doctoral Development Facilitators. Their purpose is to bring doctoral students together to discuss a common shared interest.

At our hour-long roundtables, doctoral students can share experiences with others, ask questions, and meet other doctoral students with an interest or experience in the topic.
