Every graduate student has a mentor –  self-selected, assigned, or both.  Mentoring is a relationship, and you need to be intentional in developing these relationships in graduate school to enhance your success now and in your future career.  Dr. Linda Searby, mentoring researcher and practitioner, will share tips on how to develop a network of mentors for yourself, how to work harmoniously with your advisor/mentor, what your mentor wants in YOU, and what to reasonably expect from your mentor.
