Incoming Students' Orientation
To provide our new graduate students with the essentials related to their graduate studies, every year, we will have graduate program orientation sessions. The focus of the orientation in our department will be an overview of our research program, general departmental policies, supplementary regulations and new initiatives for the coming year. New students will also be given an opportunity to meet returning students. The half day orientation session will be scheduled to coordinate with the orientation programs organized by the Faculty of Graduate Studies, the Centre for International Students, and the University of Manitoba Graduate Student Association. Each organization has its own full-day/full-week orientation program for new and returning graduate students. For example, the Graduate Students Association schedules the annual orientation/welcome back activities over a week period. In addition to food and fun, this week of activities includes highlights of Manitoba, campus tours, information sessions discussing the rights and responsibilities of graduate students, the role of the association and of an adviser on graduate student life, academic responsibility and other academic concerns surrounding research and education, introduction to some of the professional services that are available to graduate students, such as Certification in Higher Education Teaching, how to plan and write a thesis, how to maximize the library, and copyright issues.
