Grad Student SARs

The Graduate school requires an annual review of student progress for
each graduate student.  The department process for annual review
includes a meeting with your adviser(s).  Please make an appointment
with your adviser(s) to discuss your academic progress toward the
degree.  Goals, problems, research interests, and timelines for
completion should be reviewed.  Meetings should be scheduled between
February 1 and February 17. After the meeting, your adviser will
submit a brief written report to the DGS.  Your adviser(s) will be contacted as well with
a remind of the department process and deadlines.

Students are also required to submit a Student Activities Report (SAR)
each calendar year.  Cumulative information from collected SARs --
which includes information about research, teaching, publication,
conference participation, honors, and service activities in the 2016
calendar year-- is important for the department, graduate school, and
college in assessing the activities of the graduate program.  Please
submit your SAR (template attached) to Melanie (stein196@umn.edu) by
Wednesday, February 1, 2017.  We encourage you to submit a copy of this
report to your adviser at this time as well as advisers have noted
that your SAR is a helpful guide to facilitate a broader discussion of
your research and professional goals.

For more information on the annual review please check the Graduate
Handbook, available at
