Thriving in Graduate School: Troubleshooting the Mentor Relationship
START:     END:
612 Conference Center Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology

Communication is important in any mentoring relationship, whether you are the mentor or the mentee.  The Graduate Office of Student Success will be presenting on strategies to effectively navigate conflict, and the workshop will also provide resources and tips for getting departmental support.  This workshop is for first-year graduate students.  As always, time for networking and refreshments is included.  This student-run series is funded by a grant from the IGB Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative.  To sign up for our mailing list please visit https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/398930130 and watch your email for the announcement.
