Whether you are writing a research article, proposal, conference abstract or dissertation, it is important to pay attention to style. Academic style is not so much a matter of following rules, but more a matter of making choices. Even if you are aware of the stylistic conventions of your field and of academic writing in general, you may also seek ways to more strongly position yourself and create your scholarly identity. In this workshop we will discuss some common features of academic style and how to make effective choices. Bring a text you are currently working on for analysis.

Minority Serving Institutions have and continue to play an integral role in granting access, building knowledge, and empowering change that impacts both individuals and society. The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, whose legacy we commemorate as a critical figure in the advancement of civil rights and social justice, is an alumnus of Morehouse College—an MSI. Implicit in Dr. King’s push for righteousness, peace, and justice was an immense desire to transform how a nation and ultimately the world engaged with one another. It is in this spirit that we frame this forum and engagement with Minority Serving Institutions—from transactional to transformational/transformative change. Featured speakers will provide a broad overview of the MSI landscape, share their experiences with developing relationships with MSIs, and share information on how to do an institutional self-assessment before seeking to partner with MSIs. This session will serve as the first in a series of forums that foster discussion on the socio-historical and contemporary state of MSIs, insights from U-M units with relationships with MSIs, and practical information and resources for engaging MSIs.

In this workshop, we will explore conversation topics, turn-taking strategies, active listening, and sources for sample conversations. We will consider different types of conversations, such as seeming friendly and confident at a job interview or competent and insightful in a research group meeting.

Readers & Best was created in the Summer of 2014 as a joint collaboration between the Ginsberg Center’s Literacy Initiatives and the Athletic Department’s Let’s Go Do program. The goal was to provide opportunities for students across campus to come together to support reading in local schools through one-time visits. We provide the monthly curriculum for each visit, which includes a book and activity specific to the grade level of the classroom. The general Readers & Best visit requires a 2.5 hour time block from student volunteers. This includes the brief orientation, travel and the time at the school. Typically, we offer 10 slots for schools participating in the Readers and Best curriculum. The visit is led by a site leader and up to 6 additional students (since we can fit 7 people in a van). Volunteers are at the school for an hour and a half, so each volunteer reads to 2 classrooms for 30 minutes each. The Ginsberg Center provides transportation to and from the schools.

Are you planning on going into the job market soon? Did you know 92% of companies (including colleges and universities) use or plan to use social media to recruit? Many graduate students have a love/hate relationship with social media. They know they “have to do it,” that it’s the “right thing to do,” but is it necessary in higher education? What if you are planning to go the faculty tenure route—is it really necessary? At this workshop you will learn how to think more strategically about your social media strategy and presence. More specifically, you’ll decide what type of “professional persona” you are trying to portray and then you’ll learn some tactics and techniques for building your social media network. This workshop will focus on the following social media tools: LinkedIn, Twitter, WordPress,, Hoot-suite, and If This Then That.
