Students, and 'Emotional Support"
--by Martine W. Brownley
In 1999, the Office of Institutional Planning
and Research conducted a survey of Emory graduate students. Among
the survey highlights:
Three-quarters of respondents rate their academic experience
as very good or excellent.
Eighty-three percent view faculty as accessible, and 71 percent
see faculty as actively supportive of student success; however,
about 45 percent of students seeking advice on careers and life
issues related to the profession were disappointed in their advising.
Roughly two-thirds of respondents consider their preparation
for teaching to be good or excellent.
