What resources and programming are available to support peer mentoring in our department?
The Graduate School supports peer mentoring initiatives in at least three ways:
Peer Mentoring Task Force- meetings involve both experienced and novice peer mentoring programs and individuals in conversations about best practices and program development.
Web resources- include content on the MentorCenter about Peer Mentoring.
Events for mentoring pairs- acknowledging that many departments do not have the funding to host peer mentoring social events, SIGS and Graduate Student Council arrange several events each semester with mentoring in mind and encourage mentor pairs to attend together.
