The Graduate School and Postdoctoral Office at Michigan State invites graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to gather for a day of conversation about how to optimize research mentoring relationships. This event is generously supported by the NIH's National Research Mentoring Network and the Big Ten Academic Alliance.

Attendees will: 

  • discuss challenges they face and strategies they utilize as research mentors and mentees
  • engage in self-assessment to identify the domains of professional development in which they both feel comfortable mentoring and need mentoring
  • learn about evidence-based practices they may employ in their roles as mentors and mentees.

Registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
