Sept 15: Important PhD Mentoring Update
To ensure quality mentoring in our program, starting with academic year 2013-14, the doctoral program Steering Committee has introduced an annual student/advisor meeting reporting system. This includes the following:
- Current students meet with their main advisor to go over courses taken, a plan of study for the upcoming academic year, and a general overall timeline.
- New students meet with their first year advisor to devise a first year plan and a first year Advisory Committee (Committees consist of at least three members of the Interdisciplinary Group, and represent at least two academic departments).
- The advisor reports the content of the meeting to the steering committee by November 1, which can be done via email, Jean Rogers and Marina Alberti.
