Registration now open for Mentoring Undergraduates Workshop

From: Office of Undergraduate Research

The Office of Undergraduate Research will hold its annual  Mentoring Undergraduates Workshop on Jan. 16, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the North End Center, room 2420.

Drawing from multiple well established sources and programs, this free workshop will engage participants through interactive sessions on recognizing their expertise, exploring what a mentor is and is not, what a mentor does, and guidelines and best practices for mentoring undergraduate students. This year's focus will be mentoring diverse undergraduates in research with a focus on STEM disciplines, although the principles presented will be applicable broadly to other disciplines. This workshop is open to faculty, post doctoral fellows, and graduate students.

Dr. Isiah Warner, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, Louisiana State University and A & M College, and Boyd Professor of the LSU System and Philip W. West Professor of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Louisiana State University, will deliver the keynote address presenting his “hierarchical mentoring” model that fuses research, education, and mentoring to give undergraduates an opportunity for advancement in STEM disciplines.

Program capacity is 50, accepted on a first come, first served basis. Registration open until Jan. 8, or until all seats are filled. Register online at:
