Your advisor is not the only person who should be mentoring you. Look in your department
and beyond for those who can help support you in your academic and professional goals.
Look at your Disciplinary Resources
Many departments and colleges have mentorship resources and can help you reach out
to mentors in your field. Discuss your career path with your degree program’s Director
of Graduate Studies.
Distinguished Mentor Award
The Graduate School established the Distinguished Mentor Award in 2006 to honor and
encourage the considerable efforts and accomplishments of faculty who have demonstrated
exceptional commitment to the mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.
Consider nominating a mentor who you think is deserving of this recognition!
