Description of Proposal

Graduate student orientation is a time filled with a fire hose of information coming at students transitioning to new communities, new studies and trying to keep it all under control. In partnership with subject-area librarians and the graduate school administration, My colleague Mark Robison (Political Science, Global Affairs) and I are designing a first-year graduate student outreach program that will connect incoming graduate students with their subject librarians to learn resources the Hesburgh Libraries offer along with the services they may not know are available.

What takeaways will attendees learn from your session?

Attendees will learn how to think broadly and leverage connections in the graduate school offices, departmental offices, and marketing & communications staff. A draft outreach plan will be shared along with the simple assessment design for this pilot-year implementation. Time will be made available for questions and ongoing conversation is strongly encouraged.
