The aim of this GPD is to discuss ways in which graduate students manage their multiple roles in a healthy and satisfying manner. Panel members will briefly introduce themselves and discuss their multiple role management histories. They will then lead breakout sessions with small groups of students to discuss their experiences. Students are encouraged to reflect on the following questions prior to attending:

1. To what extent to do you believe that it is possible to balance or manage your multiple roles as a graduate student, employee, parent, child, caregiver, friend, volunteer (or other roles you may have)?

2. To what extent to do you believe that faculty are able to manage these multiple roles and what have you witnessed among faculty and mentors?

3. What are some the challenges in managing your roles?

4. What are some solutions that have worked well in managing your roles?

5. What are you hoping to learn by attending a session on managing your roles?

Panel and Breakout Session Leaders: Dr. Krista Brumley (Sociology), Dr. Annmarie Cano (The Graduate School; Psychology), Dr. Anne Duggan (Classical and Modern Languages, Literature, & Culture), Dr. Sharon Lean (Political Science), Dr. Katheryn Maguire and Dr. Donyale Padgett (Communication), Dr. Kevin Theis (Immunology & Microbiology).
