Graduate Students (Masters)
Graduate Students (PhD)Description:
From state-of-the-art labs to world-class research libraries, the Michigan AGEP Alliance partners offer graduate learning environments rich with resources. Cutting-edge programs and abundant interdisciplinary opportunities welcome students seeking some of the very best graduate education in the world. The graduate programs of the Alliance are exceptional for the outstanding quality of the research and learning they sustain and for the supportive climate they provide for the development of future researchers, scholars and teachers.
Students are invited to receive intergenerational mentoring from advanced AGEP graduate students to assist in their adjustment and success in graduate school. In addition, students are given the opportunity to participate with their faculty advisor in the Mentoring Others Results in Excellence (MORE) Program to develop individual mentoring plans to navigate their graduate experience.
MAA develops and presents its own conferences, workshops, seminars and forums for professional development. Students participate in a fall conference at MSU that focuses on professional development and a spring conference at U-M, focused on research and which provides opportunities for students to present their own work in a peer-supported environment.
Interdisciplinary Learning Communities
AGEP Scholars participate in a monthly student-organized series of STEM and SBE graduate student presentations aimed at fostering collaboration and the diversification of interdisciplinary knowledge. Seminars are open to all graduate students looking to expand their expertise and engage with their peers in an informal environment. • Note: program recently funded through NSF AGEP
