As faculty members, we all work hard to develop relationships with our graduate students that enable them to be productive and successful. Have you wondered about what colleagues in your discipline have learned about mentoring through their own experiences working with graduate students? Have you traded ideas about how to handle challenging mentoring situations that sometimes arise? Are you interested in what the research literature says about effective mentoring? This workshop dedicates time to discuss these important questions with your colleagues so as to help you promote the success of the graduate students you work with.
Faculty will identify and discuss norms for faculty-graduate student mentoring within their field(s), in order to discover the range of strategies that faculty use in advising and mentoring graduate students. Specific discussions will be organized around the professional development of doctoral students, the increasing diversity of the graduate student population, the importance of two-way conversations between mentor and mentee, and the value of written mentoring plans. Mentoring plans can assist faculty and students to develop research directions, establish expectations, and discuss educational and career goals as well as the timing of academic milestones.
