Save the Date: The Mentoring Effect

Good mentoring is at the core of ensuring a successful undergraduate research experience. Good mentoring takes time, energy, and resources. Learning to be an effective mentor is an important professional skill that needs to be cultivated and supported. We invite you to attend an on-campus conference designed to address important issues around the mentoring of undergraduate researchers. Attendees will come away with concrete skills and strategies designed to help them effectively work with undergraduate researchers. 

This year, we welcome Dr. Becky Wai-Ling Packard, from Mount Holyoke College. Dr. Packard is a professor of psychology and education and is the Director of the Weissman Center for Leadership. At the Weissman Center, she oversees all initiatives, and she is responsible for Teaching and Learning Initiatives and new faculty mentoring.

In addition to Dr. Packard, this event will feature workshops from Caltech staff and faculty members.

Graduate Students, Postdocs, and Faculty are encouraged to attend this conference.

Stay tuned for registration details in April. Email sfp@caltech.edu for more information.
