Description/Abstract

A student-mentor relationship requires compatibility of several factors, including interest in the research subject, work ethic, and personality. Because of this, as students look for research mentors, they should be encouraged to ask questions of the potential mentor about the expectations and obligations related to the project. While many of these relationships are successful, some become strained over time and the student and faculty member must determine whether to continue or part ways. In this interactive workshop, issues that may be encountered in a student-mentor relationship will be presented and possible outcomes will be discussed.
