NOT OFFERING CURRENTLY

Mentor training can make the difference between a mutually beneficial and productive mentoring relationship and one that’s draining for the mentor and discouraging for the mentee. Research Mentor Training, based on the Entering Mentoring curriculum, gives you space to reflect and reinvigorate and provides concrete tools to support a successful mentor/mentee relationship.

The curriculum is designed for graduate students, postdocs, faculty, staff, and senior undergraduates who are mentoring an undergraduate, and it’s meant to be taken alongside as you mentor, so you get just-in-time support and can try out what you’re learning. The course meets one hour a week and can be taken for one credit or no credit. Faculty-only sections are available.

  • Explore multiple strategies for effective mentoring with case studies, discussions, and readings
  • Compare mentor and mentee goals, and craft a statement of your mentoring philosophy
  • Explore time-management strategies, and discuss relevant issues as they come up
  • Collaborate and problem-solve with a group of peers
