Spring 2017 Graduate Student Orientation and Panel Discussion on Academic Publishing

Please see below for a message from the President of the ESP-GSA:

Dear new and returning ESP graduate students,

Please join us for the Spring 2017 Environmental Science and Policy orientation and panel discussion: 

January 23rd at 1:00 pm in David King Hall (room DK 3006). This event is hosted by the ESP Graduate Student Association (ESP-GSA). This is the only department-level orientation offered for graduate students, so you will not want to miss it! We will be presenting valuable information about degree requirements, resources on campus, and a who’s-who of the department.

As part of the orientation, we will be holding a special panel discussion (featuring ESP faculty, grad students, and post-docs) to discuss success in academic publishing! This will be an opportunity to ask questions and gain valuable insight into the peer-review process, advice for academic productivity, and more.

2:00 -3:00: Panel Discussion on Academic Publishing
3:30 – on: Happy hour (details TBD)
