Navigating Advisor/Advisee Relationships
Many advisor/advisee relationships are positive and productive; others can be challenging and difficult. Communication, power dynamics, different expectations, and more, can make these relationships difficult to navigate, and even negatively impact graduate students’ experiences at the professional and personal levels.
Please join us on April 14, 2022, from 9.00am to 10.00am for a webinar that addresses these difficulties. Dr. Debra Charlesworth and Anna McClatchy will discuss ways to navigate advisor/advisee relationships and resolve problems that may arise. There will be time for a Q&A session.

WANTED: CAMPUS LEADERS
MTU’s chapter of the National Residence Hall Honorary is opening up applications for residence hall students who are interested in joining!
A good candidate for NRHH is a resident who is active in their community, has given recognition to others, and has performed acts of service on small or large scales. Being a housing organization, NRHH does focus on the demonstration of these qualities in the residence halls but also recognizes contributions to the greater campus and Houghton/Hancock community as a whole.
We have two forms to be used, the first one is the application form itself, and the second form is for individuals to nominate potential members to NRHH. Anybody is able to submit a nomination (including you!), however, the applicant must be an MTU student living on campus to be eligible to apply.
The nomination form closes on Wednesday, April 13th at 5pm and the application form closes Wednesday, April 20th at 5pm. If you have any questions about NRHH or the application process, contact our Recruitment Chair Emily Vincent at email@example.com
