How a University Works
March 20 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE PRESENTS:
HOW A UNIVERSITY WORKS
Dan Bernardo, Provost and Executive Vice President
At times, graduate students and post-docs can find themselves somewhat insulated from the greater university in which they work and study. As a result, they can experience challenges navigating the university bureaucracy when they encounter a problem or if they move on to permanent employment at another higher education institution. This presentation and discussion will provide participants an inside look at how a university functions, its organization, and why things happen the way they do. Important policies and practices associated with the academic enterprise will be discussed. In addition, the basic financial structure of a modern, comprehensive research university will be presented. Participants are encouraged to bring their questions that will help them unlock internal university mysteries and also allow them to thrive at WSU and with their future higher education employer.
