Mentorship

The Multicultural Graduate Community strives to build a community of scientists at all levels of education, from undeclared freshman to PhD students defending their dissertation. As part this community-building endeavor, we have implemented a grad-to-undergrad mentorship program  that began in the 2014 Fall Quarter. The purpose of the mentorship program is to provide structured guidance to undergraduate students that are considering pursuing an advanced degree in a scientific field. Students were matched to graduate mentors based on their shared academic, and personal interests. We currently have 54 students participating in mentorship pairs. Through the program students have had the opportunity to attend quarterly lunches and workshops, including a resume/CV workshop.
