Interacting with your Advisor: Etiquette, Tips, and Tricks
What do you do when you need a form signed, but can’t seem to find your advisor? Maybe you are waiting on feedback for your manuscript, but haven’t heard anything in weeks. Or perhaps you would like to ask your advisor’s advice about something, but are unsure how to start the conversation. As graduate students, we heavily depend on our advisors to help guide us through graduate school; however, we also understand that faculty members are busy. In this panel of graduate students and faculty members, we will discuss best practices when interacting with your advisor, from handling urgent requests to getting responses to those routine emails. Please feel free to bring your own questions. Register if you plan to attend.
