Advising and mentoring relationships are vital to your success as a graduate student. The following resources can guide you in establishing an effective relationship with your primary academic advisor and cultivating additional mentoring relationships.
The Graduate Teaching Workshop Series has covered topics such as Information Literacy, Teaching Statements and Philosophies, and shared reading and discussion of The Slow Professor and Pedagogy of the Oppressed. This series began in 2015 and is designed and organized by Robb Lauzon, PhD candidate in Communication and Rhetoric. It is co-sponsored by the Office of the Graduate Experience and Folsom Library, as well as partners within the Center for Communication Practices and HASS.
