Graduate Peer Mentoring Collaborative
The Graduate Peer Mentoring Collaborative prepares doctoral students in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Veterinary Medicine, and College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to: (a) serve as peer mentors to their fellow graduate students, (b) mentor current or future undergraduates and others they may supervise, (c) be active mentees in relationships with their own mentors. Graduate Peer Mentors learn the skills to be successful mentors and mentees during a cross-college two-day retreat in May and six cross-college workshops during the academic year. Students also work within respective colleges to design a focused initiative for the academic year (e.g., host peer networking event(s); organize a speaker series on graduate student well-being; coordinate a peer mentoring program; create a college website with links to resources; design and execute a survey).
Twenty-one mentors, seven from each of the three colleges, are selected each April.
Mentors receive a stipend of $1000 during the following academic year.
