Congratulations Spring 2024 CIMER Mentoring Up

You are here

Mentoring is a multi-directional experience. Over four weeks and 12 hours, Drs. Levine and Hutnik facilitated a professional development workshop for graduate students and postdocs. Using the CIMER curriculum Mentoring Up, 14 participants representing all five colleges learned about different facets of research mentoring relationships including: aligning expectations, mataining effective communication, understanding issues of self-efficacy and fostering independence, promoting professional development while also addressing ethics and diversity, inclusion and equity. Through individual and group case study and self-reflection work and departed empowered to try some of the skills now and in the future. Faculty research mentors can take CIMER's parallel curriculum in other semesters to unpack and develop their own mentoring toolkits.
