2021 Developing Successful Mentoring Strategies

Categories: Events, Mentoring

Event Date:
January 7, 2021 – 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM


The ADVANCE Faculty Affairs and Diversity Office will be offering a series of workshops on mentoring undergraduate students, graduate students and post docs based on the evidence-based practices of the CIMER Institute (Center for Improved Mentoring Experiences in Research) at the University of Wisconsin.

This series of eight, hour-long workshops entitled, “Developing Successful Mentoring Strategies” will be scheduled on the first and third Thursday of the month from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. starting on January 7th and ending April 15th, 2021.

We encourage all new faculty who will be mentors to students, post-doctoral fellows and all graduate faculty to participate in this training.

Feedback from participants in the training last year was overwhelmingly positive:

“I really benefitted from the workshop. As I move forward as a mentor, I understand that I may need to be more proactive and take action earlier before the student starts lagging behind.

I used the materials provided in the workshop and began the conversation with my graduate student on revisiting overall expectations as we move forward with the student’s thesis.”

The Entering Mentoring curricula series addresses the new NIGMS guidelines regarding the preparation of mentors involved in training grants.

In order to obtain the certificate of completion for the training, faculty must participate in all the sessions.
