The main component of the Graduate Scholars Program to support graduate students are the unique mentoring families. Mentoring families match three incoming or second year doctoral students with a graduate student mentor who has advanced to candidacy, using individual surveys to gauge student needs and mentor strengths. Mentoring Families are required to meet once a month
This aspect of the program allows graduate scholars to connect with others that have similar backgrounds and experiences. This helps build strong networks for Graduate Scholars across campus and improves the retention of these students.
