The aim of this GPD is to discuss ways in which graduate students manage their multiple roles in a healthy and satisfying manner. Panel members will briefly introduce themselves and discuss their multiple role management histories. They will then lead breakout sessions with small groups of students to discuss their experiences. Students are encouraged to reflect on the following questions prior to attending:
1. To what extent to do you believe that it is possible to balance or manage your multiple roles as a graduate student, employee, parent, child, caregiver, friend, volunteer (or other roles you may have)?
2. To what extent to do you believe that faculty are able to manage these multiple roles and what have you witnessed among faculty and mentors?
3. What are some the challenges in managing your roles?
4. What are some solutions that have worked well in managing your roles?
5. What are you hoping to learn by attending a session on managing your roles?
Panel and Breakout Session Leaders: Dr. Krista Brumley (Sociology), Dr. Annmarie Cano (The Graduate School; Psychology), Dr. Anne Duggan (Classical and Modern Languages, Literature, & Culture), Dr. Sharon Lean (Political Science), Dr. Katheryn Maguire and Dr. Donyale Padgett (Communication), Dr. Kevin Theis (Immunology & Microbiology).
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne seminar on Thursday, February 11, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. in the Welcome Center auditorium. The guest speaker will be Dr. Thomas Bridgeman, associate professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo. He will present, "Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie." The seminar is free and open to the public; registration is requested.
Toxic cyanobacteria have been increasing in freshwater bodies worldwide, resulting in Cyanobacterial Harmful Algal Blooms (CHABs). This presentation will trace the history of HABs in Lake Erie, in particular the return of Microcystis sp. blooms to the western basin since the mid-1990s, corresponding to changing watershed land use practices and weather patterns over the past two decades. The ecology of CHABs and role of limiting nutrients will be discussed as well as efforts to minimize the impact of CHABs through bloom prediction, early-warning systems, water treatment practices, and watershed management.
A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Bridgeman's presentation.
The Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science at Wayne State University is pleased to offer the following seminar series for department faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and guests. Seminars are held on Tuesdays at 2:30–3:30 p.m. followed by a reception. All seminars are held at the Welcome Center, unless specified.
Join Dr. Vincent Rotello, Professor, Department of Chemistry, University of Massachusetts Amherst as he presents on the subject of "Interfacing Nanomaterials with Biology: Applications in Therapeutics and Diagnostics."
