Mentoring Evaluation Form Now Available

The long-awaited mentoring evaluation form is now live. This is a way for our graduate students, undergraduates, and postdoctoral associates to help the School understand its strengths and weaknesses in the area of scientific mentoring. Mentoring is distinctly different from teaching (e.g., leading a course), and while teaching is thoroughly evaluated, mentoring has not been evaluated previously. So, from now on when your mentor excels, or falls short of expectations, use the new form. You can read more about it by visting the mentorship webpage

Program Review: Thank you

A big hearty thank you to everyone who participated in the two-day visit from our program review committee. Next, the committee debriefs before they all head back to their full time jobs, and later this spring we will receive their report and recommendations. Rick will report out to the faculty in spring, and then the documentation will be released to the full community.

OSB 425 Upgrades  

The old computer in OSB 425 is being eliminated. We are also getting a new projector and intend to replace all the School's projectors this spring and summer. Changes will begin during spring break, March 20-24. Beginning Spring Quarter, instructors and presenters using OSB 425 must bring their own computer to interface with the new projector.
