Webinar Description

Establishing a mentoring relationship typically falls upon the mentee, which can leave individuals who could benefit the most (non-traditional & first generation students or individuals from marginalized groups) out in the cold. As educators and potential mentors what can we do to bridge the gap, and ease the burden? Graduate programs require students to have advisors and committees, which can provide multilayered mentoring. How can we establish a similar relationship with undergraduate students? During this webinar we will cover techniques and best practices for establishing, maintaining, or improving mentoring relationships with undergraduate students. While the topics covered will directly target undergraduate mentors they may also be useful for those working with high school or graduate students.

  • Methods of identifying potential mentees
