National Sessions are a week of learning and community-building activities occurring at various locations throughout the United States. Activities include academic workshops and seminars, special guest speakers and forums, student-led learning events, dissertation committee meetings, dissertation final oral reviews, alumni presentations, guest presentations, and other special presentations.  Graduation ceremonies and receptions occur at many sessions and add to the excitement of these important events.

The Academic Conference and Events Services team plans all aspects of the sessions including contracting the venue, posting event information on the session webpages, assisting with session registration and graduation, and answering session related questions.
