Workshop: Graduate Faculty Mentoring

Friday, March 9, 2018
9:00 am

The Graduate School will be hosting one Graduate Faculty Mentoring Workshop in West Lafayette this spring due to a complicated calendar. The workshop will be on Friday, March 09, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Stewart Center in Room 278.

The purpose of the Graduate Faculty Mentoring Workshop is to help prepare faculty who are new to Purdue University supervise and mentor graduate students. The workshop provides an overview of the expectations of mentoring graduate students at Purdue. 

*NEW THIS YEAR*  Historically it has been the practice of the Graduate School to require faculty new to Purdue to attend a Graduate Faculty Mentoring Workshop before they could obtain graduate faculty status. While a practice, it is not “policy” so Interim Dean Mason and Associate Dean Mohler have concluded that we will not hold up faculty appointments due to logistics of when the workshops are offered, especially this semester when scheduling has been challenging. This does not negate the request for faculty new to Purdue to attend one of the new faculty workshops, but it does mean the Graduate School will stop holding up appointment requests based on workshop completion.  


In addition to attending the workshop, faculty who wish to hold a position as a regular member of the Graduate Faculty must also be recommended by their unit and be a tenure-track or voting status faculty member. This process must be initiated in the Graduate School Database, and is typically done by the department graduate contact. Appointment to the graduate faculty permits a faculty member to teach graduate-level courses, to serve on graduate student advisory committees, and to chair or co-chair master’s and Ph.D. committees. The level of appointment is dependent upon the faculty member’s position, rank and credentials.


Graduate coordinators and contacts - Please provide faculty members the instructions below to register online. Email registrations are accepted, if there are any complications but my preference would be to direct them to use the electronic system.


It is very important that participants arrive on time and do not leave early. Missing part of the presentation could cause their attendance to not count toward fulfilling the requirement needed to advise students or become a regular faculty member. Please make sure that he registering faculty members are aware of this.


To register for the workshops, please go to the following link and complete the Qualtrics survey or GradFacultyWkshp2018 


Deadline for registration is Wednesday, February 28, 2018. Additional workshops will not be held on the West Lafayette campus until September 2018, however we are working on an online component that will go live by summer 2018.
