Topic: Graduate Student Success
How do you know your students are ready on the first day of school? Students and instructors may disagree with the level of understanding of prerequisite materials. Our “Summer Ramp-Up” program was designed to refresh and assess students learning at the start of our graduate program.
The Retention and Faculty Executive Committees collaborated to develop an extended first year graduate student orientation. Designed for better navigation of resources and stronger engagement, topics included: health, wellness, and balance; advising and mentoring; career planning; information literacy and writing; and the Academic Success Toolkit.
