Webinar on Mentoring Graduate Students

Graduate and professional students make critical contributions to our campus. We can help support their success, but the skills needed to be a good mentor are not universal and the distinctions between “advising” and “mentoring” are not always clearly recognized. Participate in the Graduate School's webinar Wednesday, January 30 from 2:00–3:30 p.m on the topic of mentoring. Learn more about the webinar.

UT Humanities Lecture Series: The Ordeal of Appalachia

The southern mountains are a geological province of eastern North America, but Appalachia is a cultural region, defined by its history. Where did it come from? In this lecture, Steven Stoll considers the first agrarians to colonize the mountains and the planters and investors who acquired land there at exactly the same time.
