Site visits are a chance for graduate students and postdocs to experience the academic cultures of other institutions in the COPFF Network. Those interested, particularly those pursuing the professional development certificate, are encouraged to participate.
Each individual will be matched with a faculty mentor on the host campus for lunch and a departmental visit. Your commitment to a site visit is taken very seriously. Arranging faculty contacts at the host institution is time intensive and faculty have to rearrange their schedules to accommodate your personally. Once you commit to go on a site visit and meet with a faculty mentor, your attendance is mandatory.
GTP hosts two site visits a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
