The Graduate School and Postdoctoral Office at MSU invite graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to gather for an extended workshop about how to optimize research mentoring relationships.

Attendees will: 

  1. discuss challenges they face and strategies they utilize in relationships with their mentors;
  2. engage in self-assessment to identify the domains of professional development in which they need mentoring; and
  3. learn about evidence-based practices that they may employee as they negotiate their constellations of mentoring relationships.

Important connections to diversity and inclusion and research integrity will be integrated into this program. 

A boxed lunch will be served. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let us know in the Comments field when registering.

Registration is required. Registration period is 10/2 - 11/1/18.
