On Behalf of the LFS Graduate & Postdoctoral Office
To: LFS Graduate Students
We hope this email finds you well, safe and healthy!
The LFS Graduate & Postdoctoral Office is offering mandatory annual academic check in’s with all research-based students (these check-in’s are also available for all professional program students as well, on a voluntary basis). These individual zoom meetings will cover several topics including academic progress, funding, and wellbeing.
As access to our office has been restricted due to COVID, it’s important that you feel supported by us and that you are aware of resources and services available to you, even if most of you still aren’t on campus.
You can book your appointment through Canvas (instructions attached). The available appointments for March are now posted. Additional appointments will be scheduled as needed.
We hope you will find these meetings valuable. Please don’t ever hesitate to contact us if you need anything. We are here to help you.
