Example text

As a doctoral student you are well advised to remove yourself from internal political discussions. Make it very clear to yourself and the faculty in your department that you do not want to become involved. You want to get done! You have an agenda that keeps you very busy, and there’s no time in your calendar for gossiping or for politics. While it will be inevitable that some faculty might feel rejected because you have not asked them to chair your committee, you may still maintain a professional relationship, inquiring about their work and acknowledging how their courses helped in your dissertation work.

The fact that a faculty member has engaged you in this discussion suggests a respect for the quality of your academic work.
