Thesis/dissertation submission changes to be happening soon

The Center for Graduate Studies is transitioning to an online thesis and dissertation submission process with a publisher devoted to this kind of publication. This means that students will not have to submit any printed version of their thesis/dissertation. However, the publisher will need a copyright permission forms for all the material that has been published in journal elsewhere (e.g. figures). For example, you have published a paper in journal XYZ and use one of the figures from the paper in your thesis/dissertation; you will have to get copyright to use that figure in your dissertation for publishing. It seems that hat is not such big issue. To get “permissions to reuse copyrighted material” you need to go the the publishers website and and find material related to ”rights and permissions”. If necessary create an account with the specific publisher and find and fill out the information for using a figure (or other materials) for your thesis/dissertation. Most faculty members and grad students are unaware of this so please spread the word.


Strategic Planning Information:

Informational website:

New Mexico Tech is currently drafting the vision statement (a statement of who we are or how we want to be seen as a university). A subcommittee should have a draft ready for discussion by the next meeting (1/29). There will be polls and community forums (dates yet to be determined) in which your input is crucial. Rough schedule (the final plan should be done by December 2014):
  • February: Mission Statement

  • March: Organizational Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats)

  • April: Strategy Formulation

  • May: Performance Audit/Gap Analysis

  • June: Contingency Planning

  • July: Implementation Planning

  • August-October: Strategic Plan Development

  • October-November: Presentation of draft for comment and plan enhancement

Please contact Gabrielle Miller for more information or with comments/suggestions on how to better represent/include the graduate community as the Strategic Planning process goes forward.
