Virtual Journal Club – June 2022

This meeting will address the development of departmental support structures through a discussion of the article: “Departmental support structures for physics graduate students: Development and psychometric evaluation of a self-report instrument” by Diana Sachmpazidi and Charles Henderson.

During the hour, we will discuss how this work maps onto important issues in STEM graduate education such as mentoring, wellbeing, and persistence. Participants will discuss how and in what form their programs have or lack structures that support graduate students.

We ask that if you are planning to attend this Virtual Journal Club to:
-RSVP here by June 20, 2022. A personal connection link will be emailed to you.
-Prepare for discussion by reading the article.
(an article summary will be emailed out the week prior)

This meeting is open to anyone, so please feel free to forward this information to your colleagues. If you have any questions/concerns, please email
