    Fall 2021

    Timely Topics Series


    Timely Topics is a series of opportunities to engage with subject matter experts on topics relevant to those who support and advise graduate students and programs. Every session is available to all UConn faculty and staff. We hope you’ll join us for the upcoming session:


    Graduate Admissions Forum

    Join the Graduate Admissions and GradSlate teams to learn about updates and changes regarding the 2022 admission cycle in Slate and to discuss best admissions practices. Some topics that will be included are a new and improved tab for test scores in the Reader, the new Slate Road Map, changes to Reader Review Forms, and the new Application Cover Sheet tab in the Reader. We will also revisit Slate reports that programs may find useful for admission stats, documentation, presentations from 2020 & 2021, and future trainings. Please bring your observations, questions, and items for your “wish list”.
