To foster a community of rigorous research by giving graduate students the opportunity to hone skills in several vital forms of scientific communication: literature, lecture and peer-to-peer scientific articles are a major form of communication in life sciences research - from experimental results to novel techniques, peer-reviewed journal articles are how researchers keep abreast of their field of interest. Thus, learning to interact with and critique scientific literature is a vital skill for any student hoping to pursue research. The Plant Sciences & Plant Pathology (PSPP) Journal Club provides students an outlet for discussing pertinent journal articles - thus honing such skills. The club is also a chance for busy grad students to meet and raise questions about any relevant graduate student topic - from the future of plant research and the role of graduate education...to tips for choosing a citation software…an opportunity for the peer-to-peer communication so important to the development of collaborative relationships In addition to regularly scheduled journal discussion meetings – the Journal Club will strive to organize guest speakers – talented researchers from relevant fields - to give presentations on current research topics.
Beyond honing communication skills, Journal Club provides two other valuable experiences: The diversity of research fields being covered by the participating students gives us all the chance to look further than our immediate graduate research topic and may provide us with the opportunity to learn another helpful skill necessary for researchers - seeing the bigger picture! Networking - the Journal Club is a great platform to get to know fellow grad students and at the same time establish a network of future leading scientists. Not to speak of the opportunities established by inviting guest speakers from industry, other universities and countries!

The Wilderness Association at Montana State University (Montana Wild) student organization is a perfect representation of this next generation of conservation advocates. Montana Wild members act as youth ambassadors for statewide conservation nonprofit, Montana Wilderness Association. They take action by communicating with, and inspiring, their peers to get outside and be active advocates for wild places. Many freshman take their first steps in the Lee Metcalf Wilderness on an Montana Wild organized hike. By helping facilitate these experiences, we can solidify the values of quiet recreation and conservation. These wild places become essential parts of both the physical and mental health of many in our communities, and students are no different. They provide clear water and air to the Gallatin valley, some of the most pristine wildlife habitat in the lower 48, and an essential backbone to Montana’s booming outdoor recreation economy.
In that vein, Montana Wild strives to provide those opportunities to experience the awe-inspiring beauty of Montana’s wildlands via human-powered recreation. Wild groups have ventured into the Bob Marshall and Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness areas, headed south to Grand Staircase-Escalante National Park for spring break, and spent countless hours exploring our incredible backyard; the Gallatin, Bridger, Crazy, and Madison ranges.
