Assists in the retention of junior scholars from historically marginalized communities in order to improve their representation in the UC Davis graduate community and, more broadly, in academia. Through faculty mentorship and other social and academic programming, the GSoC Mentoring Program holistically supports its graduate student participants as they navigate the rigors of graduate school.
- Faculty mentors and graduate student mentees will use any preferred medium to meet at least once a month
- Faculty mentors and graduate student mentees will complete the GSoC Mentoring Program quarterly assessment (Google form) at the end of the winter and spring quarters
- Faculty mentors and graduate student mentees will strive to attend at least one program sponsored social event per quarter
- Faculty mentors and graduate student mentees will communicate with the Graduate Student Retention Coordinator should any difficulties or challenges arise in the mentoring relationship
Are you looking for ways to support Graduate Students of Color? Would you like the opportunity to provide mentorship to such students? Are you interested in becoming a mentee to a faculty member on campus outside of your regular academic relationships?
Info dates coming soon.
