Rackham’s Resolution Officer Is Here to Help You

Having problems or concerns related to your academic or personal life? Perhaps I can help. My role as Rackham’s Resolution Officer is to help graduate students and postdocs resolve a wide range of concerns, problems, or conflicts. Perhaps you are trying to manage an interpersonal conflict with your advisor, or are experiencing a family crisis. No matter the issue - big or small – I am here to assist. Help is available to all Rackham graduate students and postdocs. Please note that I provide a confidential and neutral place to express concerns and work with individuals to identify steps to achieve a timely and fair resolution.

Meet the Deans: Peter Hitchcock

Hello! I am one of four Associate Deans, and my role at Rackham is to provide administrative oversight for graduate programs in the biological, biomedical and health sciences. In addition, I help coordinate campus-wide resources for training in the responsible conduct of research and scholarship, and I help provide support and resources for the 1400 postdoctoral research fellows working at the University of Michigan.

For Rackham Students with Extraordinary Emergency Financial Needs

Last week I wrote about Rackham’s Emergency Fund. I want to follow up by noting that, at some time during your graduate career, you may experience a significant financial emergency that does not meet the eligibility requirements for the Rackham Graduate Student Emergency Fund or exceeds the $2,500 limit of the fund. You may need assistance with living expenses after the unexpected loss of employment or departmental funding; or to replace personal items, such as computers, glasses, clothing or books that have been damaged or lost in a car accident or fire.
