What We've Done

Advisor Award

The advisor award was established to recognize outstanding advisors. After soliciting nominations, we organized a selection committee comprised of faculty, alumni, and researchers. The 2015 advisor award was presented to Professor Adil Hassam.

Peer Mentoring Program

The mentoring program pairs first year graduate students with returning graduate students to foster guidance and supportive friendships through one-on-one mentorship, community networking, and social media. We have reached over 50 graduate students!

Prospective Student Activities

We plan activities for prospective students during the Admitted Student Open House, including lab tours, evening activities, and a day trip around Washington, DC.

TA Mutual Expectations Agreement

We developed a mutual expectations agreement based on TA and instructor feedback to facilitate productive discussions between TAs and instructors.
