MUN, AU partner on graduate student, supervisor support

November 6, 2020
Memorial University and Athabasca University have partnered to help graduate students and their supervisors overcome challenges which have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The two institutions will collaborate on graduate student access to remote professional development, faculty member access to professional development on graduate student supervision, and developing opportunities that support graduate student training and supervision. “The professional development of graduate students and their supervisors is considered an essential element in the delivery of modern graduate education and graduate studies faculties are working hard to meet their needs,” said Shawn Fraser, dean of AU’s Faculty of Graduate Studies. “By working together, we will be able to strengthen and improve opportunities for graduate students and supervisors at AU and MUN.” AU (NL | AB)
