Guidelines and Instructions
- Mentoring Resources
- The Center for Mentoring serves as a central resource to support professional excellence by encouraging growth and development of faculty as mentors, scholars, and teachers.
- The National Research Mentoring Network is an excellent resource for mentoring material, as well as information about various programs they run such as mentor training, mentee training, facilitator training, grant writing coaching.
- Nature article that discusses a survey of over 6000 graduate students is an eye-opener to the turbulent nature of doctoral research.
By becoming more effective mentors and mentees, faculty can strengthen professional interactions with colleagues, advance the mission of scholarship, and foster connections with students which prepare them for success at Pitt and for lives of impact beyond campus.
