Surviving to Thriving Series: The Hidden Curriculum of Graduate School

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The workshops in this series are designed to provide students of color the skills and tools to successfully navigate academia and toxic working/learning environments, going from merely “surviving to thriving”.

The Hidden Curriculum series will be led/facilitated by: Dr. Deshira Wallance,

Assistant Professor Department of Health Behavior

Gillings School of Global Public Health Fellow, Carolina Population Center




*INTENDED FOR: Mid to Late PhD/ ABD (All But Dissertation) Students (Domestic Ethnic Minority Students)*

How do you anticipate and navigate the unknown or the “hidden curriculum” of graduate school?

Students of color may encounter situations as they come to the end of their graduate career that may be problematic or need wisdom to navigate successfully. This workshop will help propel you through the PhD and into your next chapter beyond the defense.

Examples of topics we will discuss:

 > Managing the job market: interviews, career options, etc.

 > How to choose a dissertation committee

 > How to manage advisor difficulties

 > Any other topics you want to discuss or have questions about

This will be a casual conversation, round-table style so please bring your questions and wisdom to share at this session. Join us on Wednesday, November 16th from 12PM to 1:30PM.

Please remember to register as lunch will be served and there is limited seating for this event.
