Subject: [SISPHDSTUDENTS] Awesome resource from MSU "Navigating the PhD"

Hello, friends!

I just came across this resource from the writing center at Michigan State, which might be most useful for 2nd year and 3rd year CCI/SIS PhD students, but I think also contains some great tips/information that can be used at any time in the program.

"Navigating the PhD" addresses, among other things:

  *   Managing Time & Academic Relationships
  *   Writing Processes & Strategies for Academic Writing
  *   Appendices: Time, Relationships, & Writing
  *   3: Managing Academic Relationships
  *   5: Comprehensive Exam Tips
  *   8: Dissertation Proposal Tips

Some things, such as the workshop dates are specific to Michigan State, but a lot of the other pieces seem to transfer nicely to us at CCI.

Check it out!
