Virtual Mentoring Institute: Practical Strategies for Inclusive Mentoring in Undergraduate Research for the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE)
November 8-10, 2021
1:00-2:30 PM PDT
This year’s NSHE Mentoring Institute: Practical Strategies for Inclusive Mentoring in Undergraduate Research is an interactive virtual workshop series for NSHE faculty, program administrators and students at all levels, who mentor others, particularly in STEM research.
Hosted by NSHE Sponsored Programs Office & EPSCoR and the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR), Practical Strategies sessions will:
- Explore salient/best-practices in research mentoring;
- Discuss the value of “tiered-peer mentoring” and the effectiveness of enabling students as mentors; and
- Discover strategies that foster equity and inclusion of diverse populations in research mentoring.
This is the second annual Mentoring Institute hosted by NSHE and CUR, designed to provide resources, infrastructure and connectivity, to support research and workforce development in STEM. It’s important for each NSHE institution to have representatives in attendance who are willing and able to further foster research mentoring within their programs, departments and/or institutions. Administrative, faculty and student representation from each NSHE campus is ideal as individualized/team working sessions will be held.
Please register by Friday, November 5, 2021. All participants agree to fully participate in all sessions of the series, as well as the individual group sessions and pre-/post assessments.
