As the fall semester winds down, I join you in looking forward to putting on pause some of our academic commitments during the winter break. 2017 has been a momentous year in so many respects, both on campus and in the larger world, challenging and yet hopeful. We all need a chance to reflect and recharge.
Over the coming weeks, use the different pace to take good care of yourself and your families and friends. Balance catching up on rest with having some fun! Congratulate yourself on your accomplishments, turn shortcomings into lessons learned, and plan to take better advantage of what our great university offers to support your well-being and growth.
In this edition of GradNews, you’ll find many pointers to resources available now and to opportunities in the months ahead. I hope you find these monthly newsletters informative and useful. Remember: your ideas for stories and your feedback are welcome!
My very best wishes for restorative holidays and renewed energies in 2018,
Fiona M. Doyle
Vice Provost for Graduate Studies
and Dean of the Graduate Division
