Time Management for Researchers
Friday, October 24, 2014 – 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Scholarship on graduate student and faculty success strongly suggests that academics who publish on a regular basis don’t necessarily work more than anyone else, but use their time strategically. This three-hour workshop will provide a quick overview of the research on scholarly writing and its relationship to time management and procrastination. The final third of the workshop will concern apps, programs, and practical strategies for managing the writing process effectively.

Live, Learn and Intern in Washington, D.C, earning UT credit! The Archer Center Graduate Program in Public Policy is a summer program for graduate students of the University of Texas System interested in interning in Washington, D.C., while learning about the federal policymaking process as it pertains to their own academic and career goals. Please visit the Archer Center website at www.archercenter.org to learn more and download an application.
The Summer 2015 Graduate Program in Public Policy application deadline is Friday, January 23, 2015.
Graduate Fellows choose their internships based on personal, professional, and academic goals. From Capitol Hill to the White House, from media outlets to nonprofit organizations, Archer Graduate Fellows gain invaluable real world experience in D.C.’s most prestigious institutions. Fellows are responsible for researching and applying to the internship of their choice. However, Archer Center staff and our vast contacts from throughout D.C. and the UT System provide guidance throughout the process.
Fellows earn 9 hours of in-residence credit at their UT System home institution. The Graduate Program’s 3 hour Federal Policymaking course is an on the ground and behind the scenes study of the federal policymaking process and the institutions and people that comprise the federal government. This course supplements the 6 hour internship component of the Graduate Program. All students participating in the Graduate Program in Public Policy pay a flat Archer Center Program Fee in lieu of tuition and fees at their home institution, as well as the cost of books, housing, transportation, meals and incidentals. The Center currently provides some partial stipends to help fund this time in Washington, D.C., and will actively assist student in fundraising and identifying potential scholarship opportunities, if needed.
Fellowship – or friendship – is the last aspect of the Program. Archer Graduate Fellows have the opportunity and the choice to live together in historic homes in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, as part of an arrangement with WISH (Washington Intern Student Housing – www.internsdc.com). Students often say that this is one of the most fulfilling personal aspects of the Program and their time in D.C. Strong and lasting friendships are formed as well as an instant network of UT System colleagues and contacts in Washington, D.C.
