TEAM ADVANCE Mentor Training: Best Practices in Graduate Student Mentoring

Aligning Mentoring Expectations with Graduate Student Mentees
Tuesday, January 24, 2023
2:30 - 4:00 PM | Virtual (Zoom)

Aligning your expectations with those of your graduate students is critical to developing a productive mentoring relationship, but it can be challenging. As part of an ongoing series of trainings for faculty who mentor graduate students, this session dives into strategies to identify and communicate the expectations that mentors have of graduate student mentees and graduate students have of mentors. During this workshop, we will introduce a tool (mentoring agreement) that mentors can use to align expectations and discuss several potential applications of that tool.

The workshop is intended for faculty who mentor graduate students and is the first in an ongoing series about best practices in mentoring graduate students. The series is a collaboration between The Graduate School, Center for Faculty Excellence, TEAM ADVANCE, and the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program (School of Medicine). Content is adapted from TEAM ADVANCE's Faculty Mentor Training and CIMER's Entering Mentoring.

All registrants will receive an Outlook calendar invitation confirming the workshop details and including the Zoom link.
