Graduate Programs

Diane Clemens-Knott

At the 2009 workshop on Strengthening Your Geoscience Program, working groups of participants met to address topics of concern. This page is a summary of one working group's discussion.

Brainstorming:

Themes to focus on:

Two broad questions:

  1. Improve numbers and quality of applicants?
  2. How to foster a "traditional" graduate culture?

What are some examples of departmental efforts in this area?

Assessing these efforts:

    1. how they heard about the program;
    2. why they chose to apply to the program.

What are some ideas for making this work better?

    1. prospective students
    2. information for current students
    3. get current students to post information about their current research

To foster "appropriate" culture:

What resources regarding this topic would you want to see on the website?

What is your plan for the future?
