In the words of Samuel Beckett, we’ll learn how to “fail better” by applying research-based strategies that increase self-compassion. This group provides a safe space for workshopping skillful responses to perfectionism, comparison, confusion, self-doubt, and other difficult feelings that can arise in academic contexts.
Peer Engagement Network (PEN)
Rich and deep learning often happens through collaboration. The Peer Engagement Network is a way for you to be matched with a Stanford partner. Choose an Accountability Partner, a Focus & Study Partner, a Processing Partner, or a Teaching Partner. Connect in person, through Zoom, or leverage the research-backed benefits of walk and talks at these beautiful spots on campus.
Revise & Resubmit (R&R)
Every scholar at some point is told to “revise and resubmit.” Writing a dissertation, thesis, or scholarly publication has its own unique mental and emotional challenges, but writing does not need to be a solo endeavor. Join Stanford graduate students to share writing strategies, receive support, and get words on the page.
