Mentoring Workshops

The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Training and Development in The Graduate School is excited to offer quarterly “Mentoring Up + Down” workshops for PhD students in all disciplines who would like to learn best practices to help them establish effective and productive mentoring relationships with their mentees (“mentoring down”) and with their mentors (“mentoring up”). These three-part training workshops are based on the “Entering Mentoring” curriculum developed by the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Participants who complete all three sessions are eligible to receive a certificate from the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Training and Development. 

The workshop schedule for Fall Quarter 2023 is posted below. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to Aubrey Korneta (
