Room 1425 BPS, 567 Wilson Rd, East Lansing, MI 48823

1st part: Monday, July 8, 2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

2nd part: Wednesday,  July 10, 2019 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

In this 2 part series (please plan to attend both sessions on 7/8 and 7/10), Dr. Beronda Montgomery will lead you through the process of developing your mentoring identity. Participants will explore different kinds of mentoring styles and develop their own personal mentoring philosophy.

They then will have the time before the second session to work on their philosophy. During the second portion of the workshop on the 10th, the participants will form a small group to get peer feedback and also get the opportunity to get individual consultation with Beronda about their mentoring philosophy.

This is an incredible opportunity. Dr. Montgomery is a Professor of Plant Biology and an internationally recognized expert on mentoring in science. This is an opportunity for you to develop your own mentoring philosophy and get personalized feedback from one of the country's foremost experts. Such a document is useful for your own development, of course, but is also valuable as you approach your job search and may be asked to talk about how you view your role in mentoring your students, peer mentoring, and "mentoring up” and how this philosophy can evolve as you pursue different job opportunities.

Please join us for BOTH sessions. Lunch is served both days.
