The University Library is funding a one-year pilot program to explore ways to support first-year doctoral students. This pilot initiative seeks to introduce a cohesive multidisciplinary research support system that includes writing assistance, data management, and peer-to-peer mentoring for cohorts of first-year doctoral students. The pilot will start on September 8, 2020.
As part of the design process, we are conducting IRB approved focus group discussions with current UIUC doctoral students to incorporate their feedback. We would be grateful if you can share this information with students in your department. The group discussions will be held in Room 308 of the Main Library Building at the following times:
MARCH 10, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
MARCH 11, 2020, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
MARCH 12, 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
All interested doctoral students are welcome to attend.
