Student Development

Explore development opportunities as a graduate student to enhance your skills outside of research and coursework.

GRADvantage Framework

GRADvantage is a personal and professional development framework for graduate students. It can help set students up for success during and after grad school and help prepare for the next step in a student’s journey. This information hub is a “one-stop shop” to learn how Brock University can help support graduate personal and professional growth.
