graduate student mentor - updated 8/25/20
This year, due to the pandemic and the necessity of remote study, we are taking a new approach to mentoring. Our goal is to provide more opportunities for you to make connections.
There will be a formal mentoring system, administered by our student leadership council. You will receive more information from them on this topic over the next few weeks.
We are also implementing a buddy system, for this year only, where one of our more senior students will contact you, with the goal of providing another point of social and scientific connection. This system will be informal and less detailed than the student-run mentoring system.
