Workshop Series: Preparing to Take the EPI

These four workshops are designed for Graduate Students who plan to take the EPI. The workshops are free, but registration is required. Space is limited, so register early at First-time test-takers and students re-taking the EPI are eligible to attend. Each workshop will focus on a different part of the EPI, including the EPI's structure, how it's scored, preparation tips, definition of terms, responding to open-ended questions, strategies for effective interviewing, and activities and resources you can use on your own to prepare for the EPI. During each session, you'll also have time to practice what you've learned and receive brief feedback. Detailed information about the EPI can be found at
