Integrating co-curricular elements that make students workforce-ready by promoting soft skills like communication, leadership, collaboration, team-building, and critical thinking is a hot topic. However, many institutions struggle to effectively infuse these elements into the graduate education space. If done successfully, a program like this can not only boost the skills of your current students but also differentiate your grad program and help attract prospective students.
SUNY Buffalo has seen great success in having graduate students participate in the SEAS 360° Certificate of Professional Development Program. The program is comprised of a variety of co-curricular learning opportunities that allow graduate students to develop and improve the soft skills required in today’s competitive workforce. Join us online to learn how this innovative program came to be, the impact it has made on SUNY Buffalo’s campus, and ideas to implement a similar program at your institution.
