We encourage our graduate students to strive for excellence in their research and their course work. We also provide professional development opportunities for our students in the form of mentoring and workshops within the department and through the Graduate School via the Graduate Student Association. Many of our students also participate in external internships, and have opportunities to collaborate with researchers from other departments at UNR and from outside institutions.
