Personal Discovery Course for Graduate Students

A course on values, goals, and living fully engaged

October 23 - Dec 4, 2018

Self-development series free from cost, stress, and research. Explore personal values: Who am I? What gives my life meaning? Where do I want to go? What do I want to get out of my life, look back and be glad that I did it? How can I make a difference? Create your own life mission statement. Course will include four 1.5 hour workshops with interactive group exercises, community support of other graduate students, Personal Discovery coach (at least one meeting with staff coach), and personal reflection exercises for every session.

Personal Discovery Course will explore the following questions:

  • What are my values and principles which I wish to live by?
  • How do I integrate these into my life and school?
  • How do I care for myself?
  • How can I keep a long-term perspective?
  • How can money help or hinder me in my life mission?
