One of the most important responsibilities for many academics is teaching and developing tomorrow’s intellectual leaders. The Chicago Center for Teaching supports University instructors—graduate students, postdocs, faculty members, and other academic appointees—in developing effectiveness with the goal of enhancing student learning across campus. The center’s aim is to promote teaching as a scholarly practice that is integral to the University’s values.

UChicago GRAD equips graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to thrive in a wide variety of careers and settings. A national model, UChicago GRAD’s pioneering, tailored initiatives range from training in writing and public speaking to career exploration treks, internships, employer recruitment fairs, and alumni networking events.
