The MBP Mental Health & Wellness Committee Presents:

Learning Strategies for Grad School Success

Learn about strategies for staying motivated during graduate school and techniques to improve work-life balance and time management!

This workshop will discuss how graduate students can strengthen their self-efficacy through understanding the social and emotional aspects of learning and how it can impact motivation, completion and engagement in their work. The workshop will also discuss how learning strategies such as time management, setting a realistic pace for your work and study habits can help to develop structure and accountability when in a self-directed learning environment.

All students are strongly encouraged to attend! Refreshments will be served!
