About the Workshop Series


The Faculty of Graduate Studies, in collaboration with various academic and student support units both on and off Campus, launched the GradSteps Workshop Series in 2014. These not-for-credit workshops are designed to help graduate students navigate their programs and prepare them to transfer their skills and knowledge into the workplace; whether that be in a traditional academic setting, or for-profit or not-for-profit organisations.

Over 100 workshops are scheduled each year, taking place at Bannatyne, Fort Garry, and St Boniface campuses. Most are lunchtime (1-2 hour) sessions for which students are required to register. Topics range from “Working with your Advisor” and “Aggregate Statistics” through to “Foundations of Project Management” and “How to Write a Literature Review”.

Claim Your Workshops

The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is a record of holistic development outside of the classroom. Starting in Fall 2014, students will be able to claim their workshop attendance on their CCR, based on the student attending at least six workshops from any step within the academic year. For more information, please visit the CCR for Workshops page.
