Mentoring Graduate Students Workshop

Effective mentoring is a learned process that takes time and experience. Faculty understand how to mentor graduate students and post docs through success and failure. Effective mentors are attuned to the unique qualities and needs of their mentees and how they change over time. Indeed, meaningful mentorship requires that we embrace diversity and recognize that we can continually improve as mentors to our students and postdocs. There is no “correct” approach to mentoring, but this six-part workshop series allows faculty to develop a mentoring philosophy, experiment with various methods of mentoring, and to discuss mentoring challenges and successes with peers.

**Applicants must commit to attend all six sessions.
