What do faculty and staff mentors need to do to help graduate students finish on time, overcome isolation, doubt and writer’s block, and enjoy the process? 

This seminar will help you understand how to increase your effectiveness and outcomes as a graduate student mentor in the following key areas:

•          guiding graduate students to get the help they need when they are stuck

•          helping your advisees structure their writing time and overcome writing difficulties

•          motivating (and understanding) your students’ attitudes towards research

•          mentoring while juggling multiple commitments and never having enough time
