New Opportunities for SNRS Graduate Students
Fall Survey of Statistics across SNRS
Given the collective interest in doing more with statistics, Jason Harmon is going to organize a semi-formal seminar/discussion group. The goal is to help each other learn more about different types of statistics used across SNRS. The seminar will focus less on the details of how to perform any particular analysis, but instead focus more on surveying different types of analyses used in different situations, comparing statistical approaches used by different disciplines, and how evaluating potential approaches you might consider.
The group will meet regularly throughout the semester in a friendly, helpful environment designed to help each other learn and gain experience.
If you are interested in potentially being part of this group, please email email@example.com and describe what times during the week you are able to regularly attend. A regular time will be set based on the schedule of those that respond by Friday, August 24.
Lead/Organize Grad Student Activities
If you are interested in helping to form a leadership council for SNRS graduate students or if you just want to help lead a specific graduate student activity this year, this is an opportunity to meet and try to make your ideas happen. SNRS is open to trying to facilitate any type of temporary or permanent group based on your interest and willingness to be involved.
If you are interested in any type of a leadership role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 24 and say when you would be available to meet during the week of August 27th. If you cannot meet at all that week, but still want to be part of things, email Diane with your general interest.
Spring 2018 Activity Survey Results
The Spring activity survey gave some great insights into the activities SNRS can work on to help support and enhance graduate student learning. There were three important take home messages to share. The first two are directly tied-in to the new opportunities. If you are interested in a bigger write up of results, please click to see full results.
