About Mentoring

The relationships students form in graduate school can have a significant impact on their experience at the University and beyond its walls. Both incoming graduate students and continuing graduate students can benefit from mentoring.

A mentor can be a faculty member, a professional in a student's field of interest, or a peer. Many successful professionals have several mentors, who may be different people at different stages in their career. Mentors and professional contacts are often key to discovering and pursuing academic and professional goals.

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