Research Mentor Learning Communities (Summer 2024)

Delta Program logo

Course Description

Delta’s Research Mentor Learning Communities  are designed for graduate students and postdocs who are mentoring an undergraduate researcher or for whom mentoring may be an important part of their future career. They give you space to reflect and reinvigorate, as you receive concrete tools to support a successful mentor/mentee relationship.

This discussion-based seminar can be taken for one credit or no credit (for-credit option requires that you have a mentee).

If your section of interest is waitlisted, please register anyway. We monitor the waitlist regularly to determine whether to open additional capacity.

What do past participants say?

“One of the best classes I took in my PhD. It prepared me to work well with different types of mentees. I feel much more comfortable with mentoring and advising now.”

“Now I have better strategies regarding how to approach difficult conversations or use appropriate questions for the mentees.”
