Entering Mentoring Training – Spring 2018 RSVP

Dear UCLA Graduate Students and Postdocs,

The UCLA Entering Mentoring Training (EMT) Program seeks to develop a mentoring ethos by providing leadership, mentorship, and diversity sensitivity training to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. This course is specifically for those who directly mentor trainees working on STEM research projects. The seminar is based on a curriculum developed by the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching titled “Entering Mentoring: A Seminar to Train a New Generation of Scientist”. This course is supported by the NIH Diversity Program Consortium.

The next offering will be this Spring, April 04 – June 13, 2018 on Wednesdays, 4:00 – 5:30 pm. Those who complete the seminar course will receive a certificate of completion. Please see the syllabus attached. [EMT Spring 2018 Syllabus]

All are welcomed to RSVP; however, priority will be given to participants currently mentoring someone and senior graduate students and postdocs.
