MORE (STUDENT): Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off To a Good Start

Tuesday, May 14, 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.
