10.0. Important Academic and Professional Opportunities and Obligations
10.1. Graduate Student Association
The department has an active and productive Graduate Student Association. This GSA organizes a departmental seminar series, sponsors Friday coffees, and has a number of social events throughout the year. The GSA also maintains a Web-page on the department Web-site. This Web-page contains information about upcoming events, the lecture series, conferences, and profiles and vitas of participating graduate students. All graduate students are strongly encouraged to actively participate in this organization.
10.2. Professional Societies
Graduate students are encouraged to join and participate in the activities of professional societies. Most societies have reduced dues for students. You should attend professional meetings whenever possible. Students serving on committees or delivering papers may receive at least partial travel expense reimbursement from department and/or graduate school sources. Such reimbursement is subject to availability of funds. Thus, early application is important.
Student attendance is encouraged at departmental seminars.
10.4. Academic Integrity
Academic integrity is critically important in all aspects of graduate study. Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated and the consequences can be severe. All graduate students should be aware of standards of proper academic conduct as spelled out in the current Texas Tech University Student Handbook & Code of Conduct. These standards apply to the classroom, the conduct of research, and all other aspects of student life.
