Graduate Student Affairs

The PhD Network

The PhD Network was developed to support PhD candidates on their journey through Stevens. The network will offer opportunities for personal and professional development as well as social and leisure activities for PhD students and their families. It is our hope that the network will foster a sense of community regardless of academic department or year of study. The PhD Network is sponsored by the Office of Graduate Student Affairs and its programs are offered in collaboration with the Vice Provost of Academics, the Writing and Communications Center, and Student Counseling Services.

Facebook will be used for communication between students and for the Office of Graduate Student Affairs to advertise PhD events and activities to students. DuckSync will be used for event and activity registration.
