MORE (STUDENT) Session: Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off to a Good Start
Friday, November 11, 9:30 am to 1:00 pm EST
This in-person 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 85 percent of Rackham doctoral students who have written mentoring plans report those plans to be useful.
Faculty who have attended a MORE workshop in the past should feel free to join the workshop only for the student-faculty work together (the last hour of the workshop). Registration is still required of both the faculty and the student.
Optional additional time for developing a mentoring plan is available from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
Registration is required at https://myumi.ch/3k25Q.
