Professional Development Provided by the School of Graduate Studies: Enhancing Mentoring and the Graduate Student Experience
East Tennessee State University has taken several approaches to offering professional development for graduate students over the past several years. This includes graduate student research grants, thesis and dissertation awards, teaching awards, awards for service for the public good, Graduate Student Success Specialist service, Thesis/Dissertation/Capstone Boot Camp, Add-on Fellowships, GA Fee Scholarship, Thesis/Dissertation Scholarships, formal courses (GRAD), graduate student research magazine, and workshops. These will be briefly described, including funding sources supporting the initiatives. A mention of professional development for faculty will also be presented. There will be ample time for discussion of strategies and sharing of ideas by participants.
