MORE (FACULTY): Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off to a Good Start

Friday, May 10, 9:30 am to 1:00 pm EDT

This workshop helps enhance the mentoring relationship between the student and faculty mentor by facilitating the development of shared expectations. Mentors and mentees work independently in separate sessions to identify their own objectives and styles, and consider strategies for dealing with possible challenges. Then, 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 82 percent of Rackham doctoral students who have written mentoring plans report those plans to be useful.

Part I: Parallel Sessions, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.

  • Faculty-Only Session
  • Mentoring Across Difference 2.0 Faculty-Only Session (for returning faculty)
  • Student-Only Session

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

  • Faculty and Student Joint Session

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

  • Faculty and Student Joint Session

If this is your first time attending a MORE workshop, please plan to attend Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off to a Good Start during Part I. Faculty who have attended a MORE workshop in the previous academic year have a few more options to choose from for their Part I attendance:

  • Mentoring Across Difference 2.0: A newly developed faculty-only session intended to engage faculty in deeper reflection about the issues, concerns, and situations involved when mentoring students from non-traditional backgrounds. Faculty are invited to consider specific actions to take in research and learning spaces that address issues and concerns pertaining to mentoring across differences. The session encourages and supports faculty to explore approaches and solutions that work best for them and their students, in particular, research laboratories, research teams, and the research projects students are pursuing under a mentor’s guidance. Note: We require a minimum of approximately 12 registered faculty members to run this parallel session.
  • Faculty and student one-on-one Part II and Part III sessions will start at 11:10 a.m.

Registration is required of both the faculty and the student regardless of the option the faculty chooses. Separate registration for students is available at: https://myumi.ch/y27RV.
