Rackham Minority Serving Institutions Coffee Chat Series: Mentoring and Support for MSI Students at R1s

March 31, 2021, 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm EDT

The coffee chat series will serve as a space for scholars and practitioners to share ideas, best practices, and other resources related to R1 and Minority Serving Institutions relationships and mechanisms of support for students that transition from MSIs into R1 for graduate and professional education. The series will highlight examples from U-M, exemplars from across the country, and scholars and practitioners that explore and implement practices that foster positive experiences and outcomes for students from MSIs.

Mentoring and support for MSI students at R1s will be the topic of discussion for this session.

Speaker: Levon Esters, Ph.D., Professor of Agricultural Sciences Education and Communication, Purdue University

This series is primarily intended for faculty and staff that have existing relationships with MSIs, or for those who do not but are interested in forming relationships, as well as graduate students who have interest in this topic.
