[Rackham] Project Management for Graduate Students: Tools, Tips, and Techniques for Staying on Track

Session Is Over
East Room, Pierpont Commons, North Campus

Graduate school is full of projects, whether it is your research, professional development, community engagement, or personal tasks. Project management provides useful methods and practices that can help you organize, manage, and successfully complete projects to better serve you and your partners. In this workshop, you will get an overview of project management and learn techniques and tools for effectively managing your projects from beginning to end. This workshop is open to all students, and may be especially helpful to those with collaborative, community-based public scholarship projects looking for ways to better organize their work. 

Participants should come with a project in mind (it can be personal, academic, etc.).


  • Gain an introductory understanding of project management as a field.
  • Learn techniques to keep your projects organized and well-run.
  • Begin to develop a project charter and plan.

This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Space is limited. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
