Mentoring Workshops

Each year, the Life Sciences Education Office offers a series of monthly lunchtime workshops for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are mentoring undergraduates in the laboratory or field.  The dates for the workshops of the Winter-Spring 2016 academic year are: 

  • Monday, January 25 - Guiding students through the fellowship application process & writing recommendation letters for your students
  • Tuesday, February 9 - Developing research projects with undergraduates
  • Wednesday, March 9 - Handling challenges & celebrating achievements
  • Friday, April 8 – Panel discussion with undergraduate researchers

Participants are welcome to attend individual workshops or multiple workshops.  Participants who attend all four workshops will be recognized with a certificate of achievement.

Margaret A. Lynch, PhD, Associate Director of Science Education, organizes and facilitates the workshops. If you are interested in more information, please contact Margaret at
