Certificate of Public Engagement

MMLI graduate students and post docs have the unique opportunity to engage in professional development in their labs and departments, but also within MMLI. Thrust 5’s Education & workforce development offers unique opportunities to get involved in the campus and community, resulting in skills that can be carried into your career and beyond! The student post doc council provides an opportunity for leadership and to have your voice heard within MMLI. In addition, MMLI has various training opportunities. MMLI offers a way to be recognized for your efforts and participation in all of the above venues: through a Certificate of Public Engagement. MMLI trainees who complete the requirement for the certificate will receive a physical certificate, digital certificate, and a digital accreditation that can be shared on LinkedIn, your personal website, etc.
