From going through a competitive admissions process to taking advanced courses while juggling multiple responsibilities, life as a graduate student can be stressful. We all had to adjust to the increased demands associated with graduate school. For international students studying abroad on a temporary visa, this adjustment period is paired with some additional, unique challenges. As of 2015, nearly five million students globally were pursuing their higher education abroad. The majority of them were enrolled in master’s or doctorate programs (The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development, 2017). Many international students study in a foreign language and live in countries that are culturally different from their home country. These are some common difficulties across all international students, but what about international students in I-O?

In the last handful of columns, we’ve talked a lot about bridging the divide between I-O and L&D. Both sides have a lot to learn from each other. However, let’s not forget that L&D is not inherently populated by people who are well-versed with psychological science. Accordingly, there are some L&D professionals who hold beliefs about workplace learning that don't necessarily jibe with what we know about it from research. In this column, we’d like to talk about several “myths” about learning that we see as somewhat persistent in L&D spheres.

​In the last edition of TIP, we provided an overview of the SIOP Fellow application and selection process. We have heard from many that this process feels a bit like a black box, especially for practitioners who typically don’t have the body of work in terms of publications that academics do. As a result, we thought we’d dig a little deeper into the journeys of several of our practitioners who have earned this prestigious designation.

In this edition, you can read about the journey that Cheryl Paullin took on the road to SIOP Fellow below. It doesn’t matter if you’re a practitioner or an academic, her story reveals several great tips for how you too can become a SIOP Fellow. Here’s her story…

On November 16, the House of Representatives passed The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1), along party lines.  The Senate later moved their bill out of Committee and began debating the measure on November 30.  Senate Republican leadership is finalizing modifications to the legislation that were needed to secure the necessary 50 votes to pass the bill.  The Senate Republican leadership anticipates passing their bill late on December 1 and entering conference negotiations with the House the week of December 4.  Ultimately, Congress hopes to reach agreement on a final bill that can be sent to President Trump by the end of the year.  Of particular concern to SIOP is a proposal in the House bill that would result in increased tax liability for graduate students.
