January 27, 2017,  3:00 -4:30 pm - Graduate Student Network's Across Disciplines Town Hall Meeting

Where: Innovative Learning Studio, first floor of Renne Library

Join us for the Graduate Student Network’s Across Disciplines Town Hall, a special collaborative discussion facilitated by graduate students to determine our network's role in supporting graduate students across all disciplines at MSU.

“Graduate Student Network: Where Do We Go From Here?" Followed by student-led discussion on, "Making the Implicit Explicit: Navigating the Graduate Student Experience"

This interactive session is intended for all members of the MSU graduate school community. The conversation will be particularly focused on how the Graduate Student Network can support needs identified by students. Additional topics to be discussed include: strategies to engage in national professional networks, how to follow up on potential collaborations, qualities to look for in a mentor/advisor, identifying implicit expectations at different stages in your graduate school career, creating and maintaining networks of support at MSU and beyond.

This event will be followed by the First Fridays series, which starts in February and running through April. All events will take place from 3:00 -4:30 pm at the Innovative Learning Studio.
