The Task Force on Graduate Student Mentoring Report

At the beginning of the 2019-20 academic year, Sarah-Jane Leslie, dean of the Graduate School, and Sanjeev Kulkarni, dean of the faculty, charged a task force comprised of faculty, graduate students, and administrators with examining the issue of graduate student mentoring and advising by faculty.  Professor Kristopher Ramsay from the Department of Politics chaired this task force and submitted the report of its work this past summer. The full report and the original charge are both available here.

Despite the many disruptions related to Covid-19, the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty are confident that a number of the recommendations can be implemented this year, and that work will begin this fall semester.  Both offices look forward to seeing how these recommendations, once implemented, improve the graduate student experience at Princeton.
