Research Mentor Training – Summer 2021

Offered in collaboration with

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 a nationally-recognized 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, and senior undergraduates who are mentoring an undergraduate researcher. The seminar can be taken for one credit or no credit (for-credit option requires having a mentee). Faculty-only sections are available separately.

  • 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
