13 Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center Working across disciplines Several current NIH training grants: - Alcoholism- Neuroscience (3) - Cancer biology- Molecular medicine - Drug abuse- Microbiology and immunology - Lipid science and inflammation - PREP, EICS- Radiation Oncology (TRADONC) T32, postdoctoral At least 3 in process : - Regenerative Medicine, IRACDA (postdocs), EICS (renewal) The Graduate School supports these with boilerplate text, data collection for tables, letters of support, and often direct grant writing. Commitment to finish the installation of the Training Grant Repository which was stalled.

20 Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center “Determine the thing that can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.” - Abraham Lincoln

21 Committees: I. Graduate Structure Committee (Early spring) a. Recommendations of either status quo or current bicameral model b. Current “bicameral” structure includes Biomedical and Arts and Sciences Deans (Term is for the current academic year. No decision yet on what comes after.)

22 Committees (cont’d): II. Graduate Finance Committee (Late spring) Charged to examine flow of funds, propose strategies to close gap to offset graduate EVUs.

23 Recommendations: 1)Consider a policy for discounted tuition to be charged to research grants, to be phased in with new grants. 2)Explore the potential of Master’s programs for which students will pay tuition. 3)Work to enhance current revenue-generating activities. 4)Salary support should be provided for faculty involved in graduate teaching and administration. 5)Improve student learning experience as well as the efficiency of faculty effort. 6)Increased support for graduate training programs and postdoctoral programs.

24 Graduate School Actions: 1)Faculty task forces for tuition, Master’s, and education recommendations. Charges drafted. (Sept 2012) 2)Commitment to provide needed programming to complete the Curvita installation. (Fall 2012) 3)Positive funds flow will be administered for faculty “gEVUs” by the Graduate School. Contingent on (1).

25 Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center New Students Have Arrived Emphasis on mentoring (advisor and peer based) Graduate courses, professional seminars Research resources Grants, fellowships, and other funding opportunities Career and professional services Graduate Student Organizations and Networking Fostering interdisciplinary collaboration within and across academic units The trains continue to run on time.
