Graduate Research Opportunities at Work (GROW) Network

Are you pursuing graduate studies while you work at VIU?

VIU employs many people who are also engaged in graduate research and study while working. Graduate work can be isolating and stressful, especially when working full-time, and even more so for VIU graduate scholars who may have no sense of connection to their graduate program cohort, which is probably at a different university. 

The Office of Graduate Studies and Student Research, the Office of Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity and the Library are pleased to co-host the GROW Network which aims to support VIU employees to be successful in their graduate pursuits by building a community of practice that shares resources, tools and strategies and that organizes professional development and training opportunities.

Join this network to meet other employees pursuing graduate studies and participate in learning opportunities throughout the year.
