Transdisciplinary Mentoring Community (TMC)
The Office of Graduate Studies is developing a new initiative under Mentoring Your Way, called the Transdisciplinary Mentoring Community (TMC). TMC will pair faculty mentors with small groups of graduate students to engage in conversations and accelerate connections beyond one’s home department throughout the academic year. The aim is to foster mentoring and professional connections beyond students’ advisors and across A&S graduate programs. TMC will also guide mentors and mentees through a series of focus areas and conversations: topics might include how to better manage conflicting values, dialogue across difference, handle fatigue and burnout, and enhance effective communication skills.
The Office of Graduate Studies plans to pilot the first TMC cohort beginning in August 2024. Applications for interested graduate students will open in February 2024. Stay tuned for more information!
