The ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award recognizes exceptional and unusually interesting work produced by doctoral students. Each year, Rackham invites faculty to nominate outstanding dissertations produced in their programs. The nomination dossiers submitted are read and discussed by a review panel of faculty members who identify the finalists.
This year, the Rackham Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week will take place April 1–5. The week’s activities will feature a number of events aimed at showing our appreciation for graduate students with breakfasts, social events, and networking opportunities.
The “Best Graduate Schools” rankings are based on expert opinions about program excellence and on statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students.
Diversity in STEM fields has been a challenge for decades. To better understand the dynamics involved, one Rackham alum looks at the experiences of those entering and engaged in STEM study.
Rackham’s embedded counselor, Laura Monschau, talks frankly about issues she sees among graduate students and shares resources for those who feel that they’re struggling.
