Best Practices for Mentoring Graduate Students
Enhancing Work-Life Integration and Promoting Graduate Student Professional Development

*This workshop has been rescheduled from an earlier date.

Graduate Students' mentors play important roles in their professional and career development, from ensuring that students are aware of the their options, to helping them establish their professional networks, to training in accepted practices and norms in their disciplines, to encouraging them to explore diverse career paths.Mentors can also play influential roles in helping mentees establish healthy work-life practices. In this workshop, participants will explore ways to support work-life integration for their graduate student mentees, including how to balance competing demands, and will develop strategies to help guide professional development and sustain conversations with mentees about professional goals and career development objectives.

This workshop is intended for faculty who mentor graduate students and is part of 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.

The workshop will be held virtually on Zoom. Registrants will receive the Zoom link in a confirmation email. An Outlook calendar invitation will also be provided.
