- Tips on Reducing Stress in Graduate School
Thursday, September 20
12:00- 1:15 P.M.
Union South (TITU)
Graduate students can’t always avoid stress, but there are ways to reduce the impact stress has on your life and work. At this workshop, Rob Sepich from UHS will share simple but powerful strategies to help you focus better, reduce and manage stress, and regain energy. Register here.
Sponsored by University Health Services,
the Graduate Student Collaborative and the Office of Professional Development and Engagement of the Graduate School.
The September Delta Roundtable, “Flipping the Classroom: Benefits and Challenges,”
Thursday, September 27
Trip Commons, Memorial Union.
The Roundtable will feature discussion surrounding flipped classrooms – a form of teaching and learning in which lecture-based instruction is delivered online as “homework” and in which “homework” is performed in the classroom where students can engage more deeply with the content along with the instructor. Flipped classrooms are becoming more popular with a rising focus on a diversity of student learning styles and accessibility options. Flipped classrooms also complement the call for increased opportunities for active learning in the classroom. The facilitators will discuss the advantages and challenges of flipping classrooms and the interest and investment in flipping classrooms by the College of Engineering.
Registration for the Roundtable, which includes a free dinner, is required and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis through the registration deadline of Wed, Sep 19th. You may register here.
The event will be facilitated by Trina McMahon, Associate Professor, College of Engineering and will feature Sandra Courter, Professor Emeritus, Engineering Professional Development and Les Howles, Senior e-Learning Consultant, DoIT Academic Technology as the speakers.

- Michigan Society of Fellows

The Michigan Society of Fellows was founded in 1970 through grants from the Ford Foundation and Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies for the purpose of promoting academic and creative excellence in the humanities, the arts, the social, physical, and life sciences, and in the professions. In 2007, the Mellon Foundation awarded a grant to add four Mellon Fellows annually in the humanities, expanding the number of fellowships awarded each year from four to eight. The objective of the Society is to provide financial and intellectual support for individuals holding advanced degrees in their fields, who are selected for their outstanding achievement, professional promise, and interdisciplinary interests. We invite applications from qualified candidates for three-year fellowships at the University of Michigan.
Candidates should be near the beginning of their professional careers. Those selected for fellowships must have received the Ph.D. degree or comparable artistic or professional degree between June 1, 2010, and September 1, 2013. For more information, please view the full position description.
