Date and Time

Friday, February 17, 2023 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM


You can RSVP for this event



This session will take place via Zoom. 


These two sessions are adapted from the Entering Mentoring series developed by the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Research (CIMER). Entering Mentoring is an evidence-based, interactive approach designed to help mentors develop skills for engaging in productive, culturally responsive, research mentoring relationships—relationships that optimize the success of both mentors and mentees. The Entering Mentoring curriculum provides mentors with an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with various mentoring techniques, and a forum for addressing mentoring dilemmas with support from fellow faculty. Prior attendance at GVSU Entering Mentoring sessions is not required.

2/17 Entering Mentoring: Promoting Student Self-Efficacy and Professional Development

As a result of this session, mentors will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Identify the roles mentors play in their mentees’ self-efficacy and professional development
  2. Support conversations and goalsetting with mentees about career and professional development goals
  3. Guide and promote student learning and development while balancing the competing demands, needs and interests of mentors and mentees

This event also appears on the main events calendar tagged as cuse, faculty, and mentoring.
