Get the Mentoring You Need and Want

Monday, August 10 at 4:00 pm & Wednesday, September 9 at 10:00 am

Mentoring is the most critical relationship for a graduate student. Mentoring begins with understanding what mentoring is and what you hope to get out of the relationship. Through interactive discussion and case studies, we will discuss how to establish a positive relationship and communicate effectively with your mentors.
