Mentee Training: Getting off to a Good Start with Your Advisor

Event Date:
September 15, 2023 – 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM

Atkins 146

The Center for Graduate Life and Learning will offer three sessions of Mentee Training this fall. Developed using the curriculum from CIMER, Center for Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research, this program is meant for doctoral research students to build skills to successfully navigate research endeavors. We’ll cover how to build and manage your relationship with you advisor and mentors, how to work well with your labmates and have a successful research experience, and how to plan for and develop a career path that is just right for you.

Each session will last 3 hours and will begin with lunch, networking, and introductions. We recommend you attend all three sessions sequentially, but if you can’t make them all, they can also stand alone.

Session 2: Friday, October 13, 12:30-3:30

Session 3: Wednesday, November 8, 12:30-3:30

This first workshop will discuss effective strategies to build a strong working relationship with your advisor. You will gain insight that will help you communicate more effectively, set clear expectations, and foster a collaborative environment to ensure a successful academic journey. Join us for this engaging workshop to make the most of your mentor-mentee partnership.

Registration will be capped at 45 to allow for small group discussions
