Advising & Mentoring

Brown University is committed to establishing and maintaining training programs of the highest quality. We believe advising and mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral appointees (postdocs) are essential in ensuring successful training.

The Graduate School encourages trainers and trainees to discuss the advising process, goals, and plans.

Guidelines, an Individual Development Plan, and an advising agreement are offered for the use of faculty, graduate students, and postdocs. They are saved in Word and can be customized.
