The Graduate School needs your help in welcoming our new graduate students and helping them successfully begin their career at Michigan Tech. Faculty, staff and student volunteers are needed to facilitate discussion during orientation. This is your opportunity to help enhance graduate education at Michigan Tech.
The training will help graduate students and advisors set expectations for graduate education and introduce students to basic concepts in responsible conduct for research. The program centers around an interest based approach that has been developed by Michigan State for use in their graduate programs.
Volunteers will help facilitate discussion at a table with six or seven new graduate students. The discussion will center around two vignettes that depict typical graduate student and faculty interactions. Volunteers will participate in one of the training sessions offered on Monday, August 24th from 1:00 – 3:00pm and Tuesday, August 25th from 10am – noon.
Orientation begins at 9am on Wednesday, August 26th.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the locations for the training and orientation, along with reminders as we get closer to the event.
