The SHPE GRADS Mentoring Groups places our graduate and advanced degree students in small groups where, with the help of a facilitator, they can discuss topics that can help them survive and thrive in graduate school and beyond. The GRADS Mentoring Groups focus on the need for our GRaduate & Advanced Degree Students to develop skills that can help them survive and thrive in graduate school and beyond. These mentorship groups will provide our GRADS with a safe space where they can discuss professional experiences and challenges with more experienced colleagues and facilitators (mentors). These groups are meant to be small enough to be able to create meaningful relationships between mentors and mentees. Different groups can discuss different topics such as writing, applying for a job in academia or industry, mental health in graduate school, research design, etc. The groups will meet at least once a week, establish a goal, and work on a deliverable. For example, the writing circle could decide they will work on writing a chapter of their dissertation and work together with the group and mentors in accomplishing that goal. Learn More »
