MORE: Fall 2021 FACULTY Getting Your Mentoring Relationship Off to a Good Start
This virtual workshop helps enhance the mentoring relationship between the student and faculty mentor by facilitating the development of shared expectations. In Part I of the workshop, mentors and mentees work independently in separate sessions to identify their own objectives and styles, and to consider strategies for dealing with possible challenges. In Part II, 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.
Please note that October 22 and November 12 workshops that fall on Fridays have a different start time of 10:30 a.m., than the November 2, Tuesday workshop which starts at 9:30 a.m.
