About the Fieldwork Safety Symposium

Presented by Graduate Studies, the GradPathways Institute for Professional Development and a variety of campus departments, the 2019 Fieldwork Safety Symposium is designed to provide graduate students with information and resources relating to fieldwork considerations and precautions. 

This event will examine how graduate students have addressed fieldwork safety concerns in the past, and provide strategies for managing whatever issues may occur in future fieldwork. Participants will leave with the resources required to develop their own safety plan. Program agenda and additional information available in January 2019.
