Dear ECE Graduate students,

The Center for Teaching and Faculty Excellence (CTFE) is currently accepting applications for participating in a 1-credit seminar in spring 2017 called PROV 601: “Thriving in Your Graduate Program: Fostering Graduate Student Success”.


The seminar is for beginning (1st- and 2nd-year) doctoral and Master’s degree students. The deadline to apply is October 18th. If you are selected to join the spring 2017 cohort, the Provost’s office will pay the 1-credit tuition to participate in the program. You will need to provide a couple of items including a letter of support from your advisor as part of the application. This is an especially good opportunity for PhD students!
