About Mentoring

Both incoming graduate students and continuing graduate students can benefit from mentoring.

A mentor is defined by Webster's dictionary as, "a trusted counselor or guide." Many successful professionals have several mentors, who may be different people at different stages in their career. A mentor can be a faculty member, a professional in the field, or a peer. 

Resources on this page will help you find a mentor and educate yourself about professional networking.
