Behind the Scenes: The Collaborative Effort Fueling the VTS Doctoral Residency

Date: June 12, 2024

This week as we welcome doctoral students, there are so many people and programs that make the doctoral residency possible. Faculty teach and mentor students, including full-time faculty and our dedicated doctoral Senior Lecturers. Many offices across VTS contribute to the residency as well. AASL, IA, and the Dean’s Office have all been involved in recruiting students. The library staff provide a welcoming space for study, orient new students, and happily meet individually with students working through difficult research questions. The Finance Department carefully handles student billing, while Meriweather Godsey prepares the delicious food we enjoy. Our doctoral students often marvel at the beauty of the campus, maintained by our maintenance, ground crew, and housekeeping.

Most of all, Jenn Baker our Programs Coordinator has worked tirelessly to make the residency this year a wonderful success. Be sure to thank Jenn and other VTS staff for all they do to make the residency a success!
