The Graduate School is hosting the first of what is hoped to become a series of conversations among faculty about the rewards and challenges of graduate advising. The goal is to create a supportive space for faculty of all experience levels to come together and share and brainstorm strategies.
For this first discussion, the Graduate School invited seven faculty who have won the award for excellence in graduate advising and who will start the event by answering questions posed by moderator Dr. Janet Rankin, associate dean of the Graduate School and professor in human nutrition, food and exercise. This will be followed by an open discussion of advising case studies and topics generated by participants.
All faculty are invited and encouraged to attend. Registration is requested, but not required, to help organizers estimate refreshment amounts needed.
Date, time and place of the event:
Tuesday, April 16th, from 3:30-5:00pm in the multipurpose room in the GLC
Light refreshments will be served.
