MORE: Fall 2021 STUDENT Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off to a Good Start

November 2, 2021, 9:30 am to 12:00 pm EDT

This virtual workshop helps enhance the mentoring relationship between the student and faculty mentor by facilitating the development of shared expectations. In Part I of the workshop, mentors and mentees work independently in separate sessions to identify their own objectives and styles, and to consider strategies for dealing with possible challenges. In Part II, student-faculty pairs work together to develop a written mentoring plan as a means of codifying some of the most important elements (needs, goals, mutual expectations) of a two-way mentoring relationship. Over 85 percent of Rackham doctoral students who have written mentoring plans report those plans to be useful.

Part I, Faculty Only and Student Only Sessions: 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.

Part II, Faculty and Student Joint Session, 11:10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Part III, Optional Additional One-on-One Time, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
