Pathways to Success, the Graduate School’s suite of professional development programming, is designed to help graduate and professional students and postdoctoral scholars be successful at Cornell and in their future careers. Pathways to Success focuses on academic, career, personal, and professional development through four primary categories: navigate academia, build your skills, create your plan, and prepare for your career.
There are several Graduate School offices that will help doctoral students and postdocs in these areas of development, including the offices of:
- Postdoctoral Studies
- Academic and Student Affairs
- Graduate Student Life
- Inclusion and Student Engagement
The Graduate School’s Careers Beyond Academia collaborates with other units on campus as well. We encourage participants to visit these units and view their programs and other offerings.
