The mentoring network pairs undergraduate student mentees with graduate student mentors. Pairs are made after a Speed Mentoring event in September where undergraduate students are able to talk with all available mentors for a few minutes then list their mentor preferences. The pairings are made by our faculty advisor, Dr. Katie Newhall.
The specifics of the individual mentoring relationships are decided by the mentor and mentee. Many pairs meet once or twice a semester for coffee and/or lunch and communicate through text or email more regularly. Past undergraduate participants have said the Mentoring Network was especially helpful for navigating course decisions and feeling more connected to the Mathematics Department.
Graduate Students: Sign up to be a mentor here by September 21st.
All graduate students in the mathematics department are eligible to become a mentor. No previous mentoring experience required!
Undergraduate Students: Sign up to request a mentor here by September 21st.
All AWM members are eligible to request a mentor. If we do not have enough mentors to pair everyone, math majors who identify as an underrepresented gender will be given priority.
The Speed Mentoring event is scheduled for Monday, September 24th at 5:00pm in PH 330.
