Mentor Training

Biannually, The Graduate School (TGS) invites faculty mentors of postdocs and PhD students to participate in a two-day workshop for research mentors.

By stipulating our expectations as mentors and communicating clearly, we help students progress toward independent research. This intensive workshop focuses on helping faculty develop as research mentors. Activities and discussion will focus on:

  • Skills that faculty need to help more kinds of students make progress toward autonomy.
  • Tools and strategies to help faculty and students become dynamic partners in doctoral students’ intellectual and professional development.

Workshop for Research Mentors

Our next workshop will be offered on September 18, 2017.  Please click here to register.
