Sent of behalf of the Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning:
Dear Graduate Students,
The Sheridan Center’s Theme for AY2013-14 is Mentorship. We are pleased to announce a new program for graduate students in mentorship skills development, coordinated by Neal Fox (CLPS) and Kathy Takayama. This new program will provide funding (up to $7,000, plus a $500 honorarium for the faculty advisor) to teams and pairs of graduate and undergraduate students interested in pursuing scholarly development or in examining research questions in a way that both gives the graduate students opportunities to practice critical mentorship skills and promotes undergraduate students' intellectual development. Furthermore, graduate student mentors will receive training in positive mentorship principles and practices during the 2013-2014 academic year. Questions may be addressed to Neal Fox or to Kathy Takayama.
For more information, please see the Sheridan Mentorship Program call for applications.
