What resources and programming are available to support peer mentoring in our department?
If your program is short on funding and doesn't organize it's own peer mentoring events, we encourage students to utilize existing university events as mentoring events. Graduate Student Council and PLAN events are particularly appropriate to "co-opt" as a peer mentoring event for your department--just select an event and market it to your students with the encouragement to attend with their mentors or mentees!
In addition, PLAN is developing a growing body of resources to learn about mentoring. Check the PLAN Calendar for updated event and workshop information, as well as the Get Social! Page, which features social events from around the city.
