Leading with a Ph.D. Conference: Mentorship Matters

Jan 12 2019 -
9:30am to 4:30pm

All graduate students benefit from supportive mentorship. While you receive guidance from a faculty adviser on your research and academic progress, mentorship expands beyond the adviser/advisee relationship to a broader community of professors and professionals who may support your development as a researcher, scholar and beyond. The goal of this conference is to share resources and techniques to help you curate a community of mentors that will assist you in reaching your career and personal goals.

In its fourth year, the Leading with a Ph.D. conference provides graduate students the opportunity to come together across disciplines for a day of professional and career development. It's free & on-campus!
