Facilitators sought for fall orientation

The Graduate School needs your help in welcoming our new graduate students and helping them successfully begin their career at Michigan Tech.  Fall orientation is on August 25th, beginning at 8:30am and will run through mid-afternoon.  We are looking for volunteers to help facilitate discussion at a table with six or seven new graduate students during the morning session from 8:30 – lunch.

Orientation will help graduate students and advisors set expectations for graduate education and introduce students to basic concepts in responsible conduct for research.  The discussion will center around two vignettes that depict typical graduate student and faculty interactions, and some basic RCR concepts such as plagiarism.

Please register online if you would like to volunteer.

New volunteers will participate in one training session offered the week of August 23rd.  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.
