Resources

We have collected several resources to help improve graduate education. Below, you will find Data Collection Tools that have been used at different institutions to assess graduate welfare, workload, advising, and campus climate. We also have a collection of Mentorship Agreements in use to ensure that both advisors and trainees understand the responsibilities and boundaries of the relationship. You will also find Mentorship Standards and Guidelines that have been created by several institutions to guide their research advisors and mentors. Finally, you will find a list of External Efforts going on at other institutions and organizations to address graduate education and research mentorship.
