You are very important to the university, especially with your contributions to research and education.  Not only do you conduct research and serve as Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs), you also serve as GTAs, and GAs.  Attached are two messages I hope you find helpful - one about graduate student employment and the other about graduate student research. (The hyperlinks go to pdf versions of the two messages).

Via email I am notifying all graduate students, faculty, Graduate Program Directors, Deans, Department Heads, Institute Directors, and research faculty.  We will also post these messages on the Graduate School website.

Thanks for supporting the academic, research and engagement missions of VT.

Be well
