This workshop is part of our Grad Rebel Appreciation Week, which celebrates the incredible contribution that graduate students make to the mission of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas through their efforts in research, service, and teaching.
Throughout the course of your career, your status as a mentor will continually evolve. As a graduate student you are a mentor to undergraduates. As a postdoctoral scholar you have a mentoring relationship with graduate and undergraduate students. When you become a faculty member, you not serve as a mentor to these individuals, but eventually to early career faculty. By participating in this workshop you will:
Appreciate the similarities and differences between advising and mentoring undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and early career faculty
Learn strategies and best practices for advising and mentoring individuals at these different stages, which will help you throughout your academic career
Participants will also have the opportunity to share their own strategies about the most effective way to advise and mentor students.
