About the Liaison Program
PhD Plus Liaison program affords the opportunity for professional development and leadership experience to PhD students in middle and advanced years. PhD+ Liaisons collaborate with department leaders and PhD Plus administrators to identify ways in which field-specific training and education can be enhanced through the implementation of programs, practices, and activities broadly related to professional development.
In 2020-2021, eight PhD+ liaisons will provide leadership and perspectives of students to the University's AAU PhD Education initiative (read more here). These Liaisons represent the four participating departments: Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, English and Religious Studies. The Liaisons will collaborate with Chairs, Directors of Graduate studies of their departments, PhD+ administrators and fellow liaisons to advance the goals of first year of AAU PhD Education Initiative.
