Dean’s Welcome

Dear Students, Friends and Colleagues:

Welcome to the second year of the Graduate School newsletter! I hope you enjoy our featured stories such as the one on the new professional track in the Meek School of Journalism and New Media. We continue to highlight the interesting work done by our graduate students including the research performed by biology students in ecological restoration in British Columbia, Canada. Please note that the Graduate School will again sponsor the Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) this fall semester, and one of our articles in this issue summarizes this exciting program.

Thanks for reading our newsletter, and please continue to send us suggestions and ideas. We welcome story concepts from students and faculty, and we would love to hear about the successes of our graduate alumni. We appreciate your support of the Graduate School at the University of Mississippi!

John Z. Kiss
Dean of the Graduate School
