Graduate Mentoring Initiative

Graduate Studies recently developed a faculty mentoring program for faculty across all disciplines called the Graduate Mentoring Initiative. The program includes six sessions and is a cohort model where faculty attend all sessions together. I included the topics covered below. Professor Archana Venkatesan is one of our faculty facilitators and will be lending valuable perspectives on graduate mentoring in the arts and humanities.
