• Implemented as a result of feedback we
  have received from graduating students
  that have indicated we needed a more
  formal/interactive method for
  communicating administrative aspects of
  the program.
• Already resulting in more timely student
  progress on plans of study etc.

               Advisors (TA)
• If you are a TA, develop a clear understanding if
  your academic advisor is same/different then
  your TA supervisor.
• Define clear expectations in regards to
  – Teaching responsibilities
  – Research responsibilities
• Establish regular meetings.
• Around the 10th week, establish a dialog on
  Spring 2007 plans… make this a practice each
  semester.
              Advisors (RA)
• If you are a RA, develop a clear understanding
  of your short, medium, and long term
  expectations.
• Read your advisors writings…understand their
  writing style
• Establish regular meetings.
• Around the 10th week, establish a dialog on
  Spring 2007 plans… make this a practice each
  semester.
           Advisee/Advisors
• Work to make it a win-win
  – Students are mentored on technical,
    professional, and interpersonal skills.
  – Faculty are able to leverage their time on
    research, teaching, and outreach activities.
   Incentive Grants for Fellowship
             Applications
• http://www.gradschool.purdue.edu/funding/anno
  uncements/incentive.cfm
• The program provides an award of $500 for the
  first proposal and $250 for each additional
  proposal submitted to a select list of eligible
  fellowship programs. In general, two types of
  external fellowships are eligible; external multi-
  year fellowships, and external dissertation
  fellowships. We hope that the proposals will be
  funded, but awarding of the Incentive Grant does
  not depend on the success of the proposal.
