Student Resources and Supports

It’s not unusual to be dealing with challenges that can impact your performance in the program. We encourage you to review the various supports and resources available to you.

You can also find out more about the available resources through the:

  • Graduate Coordinator
    The Graduate Coordinator is a faculty member who takes responsibility for dealing with program/curriculum issues pertinent to a particular year. The Graduate Coordinator is available to meet with you at any time regarding issues related to the program, financial issues or personal matters. For 2022-2023, the Graduate Coordinator is Professor Jaimie Coleman.  

  • Faculty Mailboxes
    Messages for faculty can be left in faculty mailboxes. However, e-mail is one of the easiest and preferred ways to leave a message for faculty. You may also call the faculty member directly and leave a voice-mail message.

  • Bulletin Boards on the 7th Floor
    Bulletin boards are arranged according to year. Please consult the boards regularly as important information (e.g., clinical education information, job postings, events, etc.) is posted on a regular basis.
