MTU Hosting Health Professions Mock Interview Day

Michigan Tech Pre-Health Professions is excited to host its annual Health Professions Mock Interview Day on Tuesday (April 12).

Students will have the opportunity to practice and gain experience with common graduate health program interview formats, including traditional interviews and multiple mini interviews. We have recruited volunteers to help out with this event, including current medical/professional students, local providers, and University faculty and staff. The goal is to help better prepare students for these types of interviews with practice and valuable feedback.

Interested students can contact the Director of Pre-Health Professions Nicole Seigneurie at nmseigne@mtu.edu.

Michigan Tech Copyright Workshop for Graduate Students

What’s copyright and what does it have to do with your dissertation? Do you need permission to use someone else’s figure or image, or an article you wrote? Should you make your thesis open access? And what is a Creative Commons license? Get the answers to these and other questions at the library workshop: “Copyright and Your Dissertation, Thesis, or Master’s Report.”

In this workshop, you’ll learn the role U.S. copyright law plays in writing and publishing your report, thesis or dissertation. We will explore the legal use of copyrighted material, publishing agreements, Creative Commons licensing and the role of Michigan Tech’s institutional repository, Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech. After this workshop you will be prepared to make informed decisions about using copyrighted material and the publishing options for your dissertation, thesis or master’s report.

Please join us in Library 244 at noon on Monday (March 21). Registration is required.

Michigan Tech Graduate Student Professional Development Series


Part 1: Absences, Leaves and Mental Health Support

New and returning graduate students are invited to join Graduate School staff from 2-3 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 25) in MUB Alumni Lounges B and C to learn more about the processes and resources available to you to navigate situations including excused absences, medical considerations and parental leave. This presentation is the first in our Graduate Student Professional Development Series. 

We understand that graduate students have many responsibilities outside of the classroom, lab and office that at times can hinder academic success and professional development. While we in the Graduate School hope that you never experience disruptions like illness or other emergencies, we want you to know how to proceed if you encounter an unexpected situation while enrolled at Tech.

Please register soon, as space is limited to 30 students. If you cannot attend but want more information about the topics we will cover, please email Anna McClatchy, manager of outreach and retention, at ajmcclat@mtu.edu.
