Has a professor ever supported you when you needed it most? Answered your questions in a late-night phone call? Introduced you to valuable contacts? Written an amazing letter of recommendation that landed you the job? When a professor goes above and beyond expectations, they are more than just an educator—they’re a trusted mentor, confidante and friend. Give back to a professor who has given so much by nominating them for the Excellence in Mentoring of Doctoral Students Award.
You come to graduate school for academic studies, but you’re also looking for career experience and real-world connections. There are plenty of ways to get involved on-campus, but you can also venture out to find opportunities around the region. Check out these organizations and events here at UC and in the Cincinnati area that can give you a jump on your future career.
Engineering, neuroscience, women’s studies—no matter what program you’re in, all graduate students have one thing in common: We have to write. There are as many different styles of writing as there are fields of study, so it can be difficult to know where to start. Heading in to the Academic Writing Center (AWC) is a great place to begin.
What do the social sciences and everyday college life have in common? More than you might think—just ask clinical psychology PhD candidate Eliza Weitbrecht. Her award-winning master’s thesis explores the “hook up” culture of college students. Nominated for the MAGS competition, Eliza’s research focuses on the motivations and expectations young adults associate with casual sexual encounters.
Have you ever wanted to learn about learning, or be taught how to teach? As a graduate student, your day-to-day life is immersed in academic culture. The further you go in your education, the more you become invested in its practices. If you want to make a difference in the teaching community, the Graduate Association for Teaching Enhancement (GATE) is the place for you.
If you aren’t a lawyer, words like “mediation” and “negation” may be a little intimidating. But when conflicts come up, these resolution methods can help you make the best of the situation. So what do you do when you need to mediate or negotiate, but aren’t sure where to start? Call upon the Office of the University Ombuds to guide you to a successful resolution.
Bearcats come from all over the world. As a student at UC, your cultural experience can go far beyond the limits of Cincinnati. You may be from or have classmates from China, India and South Korea. You can go to international events around campus. And you’ve also got IPALs—International Partners and Leaders—to help you find your place in UC’s diverse community. Meet some of the IPALs as they share who they are, how they got involved, and why they love being part of this group.
When you’re writing papers and conducting research, it can be difficult to find exactly what you’re looking for. Wouldn’t it be great to have a subject matter expert to guide you? Wouldn’t it be even better if this expert were right here on campus? These superheroes are real, and we call them research librarians.
