    1) providing networking and academic success training of doctoral students from admission all the way through completion; 

    2) working with candidates on individualized completion goals and career preparation. Doctoral students will work with the Graduate and Professional School staff and disciplinary faculty mentors to build a comprehensive plan of research and professional development;
