Description/Abstract

The mentor-mentee relationship is one of the core components of a successful undergraduate research experience. Often the mentormentee relationship is influenced by other mentors (graduate students), program expectations, and program directors. Examples of workshops and tools that can be used with students, mentors, and research team members will be shared. These include workshop exercises on expectations and recommendation letters, using assessment topics to guide mentoring, grad student/post doc mentoring training, ongoing faculty discussion topics, partnering with the Career Center to increase understanding and dialog between mentors/mentees, and playing with Mr. Potato Head. Participants will try some of the exercises themselves and return to their campuses with new ideas to try for their own mentor training and student preparation.
