Mentoring Graduate Students

Graduate College Guidelines

Mentoring has many facets and many participants. The Graduate College's Suggested Guidelines for Graduate Student Mentoring were developed through conversations with faculty, graduate program administrators and graduate students. They outline the roles of faculty, students and graduate programs in creating a positive and supportive environment, aiding academic success, and fostering career development.
