Several events take place at the start of the fall semester each year to orient our new graduate or professional students to Pitt and Pittsburgh. Navigate all the activities so you don't miss out on important information about resources and opportunities to engage with your peers from all of the 14 graduate schools.
The 3MT competition celebrates the exciting research conducted by Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) students. Developed by The University of Queensland (UQ), 3MT cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. The competition supports their capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Each semester the Office of the Provost - Graduate Studies hosts webinars, resource fairs, and trainings to address topics ranging from graduate program career paths to student-parenting resources. Visit Workshops and Other Events to see a schedule of upcoming and recent events, often with links to shared materials and session recordings.
Each April, the University of Pittsburgh participates in the annual Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week. See the 2022 event page for details about Appreciation Week events.
