Topic Details


Mentorship can be vital for any student, but particularly for those who are engaging in research. In this session, attendees will discuss some of the fears or apprehensions they may have about approaching faculty members—especially those they have no previous engagement with—to be research mentors. Attendees will also practice using available resources to find faculty members to partner with and create example emails to enhance their communication skills when reaching out to faculty.
