Mentoring Undergraduate Researchers

This interactive workshop focuses on successful strategies graduate students can use when mentoring an undergraduate researcher or group of undergraduates conducting research. It also provides the opportunity to network with other graduate mentors and offers practical wisdom for mentoring undergraduates.

Whether you currently mentor undergraduates or not, we encourage you to ask our panel of graduate student mentors about their experience in mentoring undergraduates and how you can be successful in doing this yourself!

We will discuss mentoring styles and give examples of approaches to specific problems. Some of the topics will include:

  • Fostering independence in undergraduate researcher
  • Successful work and meeting schedules
  • Keeping students motivated
  • Responsibilities of graduate student mentors in passing on research ethics and conventions of the discipline
  • Strategies for dealing with problems or issues

Check out upcoming workshops and register on our calendar.
