Grad School Hacks: Aligning Expectations with Your Mentor
October 14, 2021 4:00 pm / 5:30 pm
A shared understanding of what each person expects is critical to establishing effective mentor-mentee
relationships. Challenges arise when mentors and mentees have misunderstandings about
expectations in the relationship, which naturally change over time. Therefore, ongoing reflection and
communication about expectations are needed to maintain a positive and productive mentor-mentee
relationship. During this workshop, participants will utilize case studies and small-group discussions to
build key mentoring competencies that support aligning expectations with their mentor.
