Data and the Graduate School Experience

Chances are you haven’t had much interaction with Rackham Institutional Research. We are typically behind the scenes trying to make sense of numbers and figuring out how to best communicate those numbers with our community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni. But you may have taken part in one of our surveys, the Current Student Survey, or if you’re close to graduating you might have participated in the Exit Survey.

Within all these data, there are important stories that contextualize and frame our understanding of the numbers that come across our desks. While we don’t always understand every complexity, we love to learn. And we are striving to learn more.

ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards Ceremony

Each year, a small number of truly exceptional dissertations completed at the University of Michigan are selected to be recognized with a ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award. Dissertations are nominated for this highly competitive award by dissertation committee Chairs, and vetted through a rigorous review process.

Earlier this week, ten Rackham Ph.D. graduates were honored with the ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award for their dissertations completed in 2016. Another eight students received an honorable mention. See the abstracts of the ten award-winning dissertations here: myumi.ch/a0rE3.
