Department of Sociology Graduate Student Mentoring Policy
Vibrant and intellectually dynamic relationships between graduate students and faculty mentors lie at the heart of graduate education. Successful mentoring is based on the principles of honesty, integrity, collegiality, mutual respect, responsibility, and accountability; in other words, trust. Outstanding faculty mentors are critical to graduate education and to creating a successful graduate student experience. Graduate student mentoring is an essential and central element of the job of all graduate faculty members at a research university. Consistent with this understanding, the Department of Sociology has established a Graduate Student Mentoring Policy, which can be downloaded here.
