FROM ABD TO PhD
Fall 2016 WORKSHOP SERIES
Purpose: Provide writing support for ABD (all but dissertated) students; discuss shared concerns about the dissertation process; and introduce strategies to facilitate writing. All participants should come prepared to write and work collaboratively with students from across diverse disciplines. This series will continue with three new workshops in the spring.
This week the Graduate College welcomed three new faculty members to part-time administrative positions: Dr. Patricia Stock, Dr. Frans Tax, and Dr. Benedict Colombi.
In partnership, the Graduate College and the Office of Digital Learning (ODL) are excited to announce a new resource available to all UA graduate students via D2L called the Graduate Launchpad.
The Graduate Launchpad was created with a graduate student’s input as a way for all graduate and professional students to explore the many tools on campus and within the online learning environments before beginning classes. This resource will also assist in connecting them to classroom technologies and support services.
