Guidelines and forms for establishing the dissertation committee.
Rackham Graduate School provides workshops supporting graduate coordinators and program staff throughout the University of Michigan.
The graduate school provides resources and information to directors of graduate programs to help them successfully manage procedures, policies, and schedules throughout the academic year, and to problem-solve and guide students to their degrees.
We developed this resource to provide a central location for sharing good ideas from across campus for practices that contribute to graduate student success.
MORE (Mentoring Others Results in Excellence) is a Rackham committee that provides faculty with effective tools and practices for mentoring graduate students and seeks to improve the graduate school experience for all students.
The Advancing New Directions in Graduate Education Initiative is Rackham’s effort to reimagine graduate education as student-centered and faculty-led.
This resource summarizes the major stressors students are facing during these stressful times, and provides guidance that mentors and graduate programs can use to support them.
While COVID-19 limits our in-person interactions, our opportunities to build community have expanded. This guide will help you create spaces where participants feel supported and engaged.
