Graduate Studies Advisory Committee Mentors/Mentees Group

Are you a new graduate program coordinator at UC Davis or UC Davis Medical Center?  If so, you might want to consider joining the Graduate Studies Advisory Committee (GSAC) Mentors/Mentees group.  This group meets once per quarter to discuss upcoming deadlines, procedures, best practices, Q & A, etc.  This is an excellent opportunity to get to know your fellow program coordinators and get advice and information that may be beneficial in your career.  New program coordinators (mentees) are paired with seasoned program coordinators (mentors) and the mentors are available to answer any questions that you may have during your day to day operations.  If you are interested in becoming involved with the GSAC mentors/mentees group, please contact co-chairs Laura Young or Christal Wintersmith.
