OPD offers more than 250 events each year. Our extensive programming—created in collaboration with a far-reaching network of partners—prepares participants to thrive in academia, industry, government, and the non-profit sector. These free events are open to all UMass graduate students and postdocs. To get a sense of the kinds of events we offer, you can see a list of all our Fall 2019 events here.
