Session Information

Description: The session aims to clarify what is expected in each type of statement (research, teaching, diversity) that graduate students may need as they apply to jobs and considers how graduate students can connect their statements to craft authentic and compelling stories about their experiences. Panelists discuss ways graduate students might approach statements as unique documents that also align to construct a persuasive story about capabilities.
