Celebrating great mentorship for graduate students
April 27, 2018
In recent years, a growing body of research has highlighted the importance of advising and mentorship to graduate students’ academic experience and well-being. The Committed to Caring program recognizes that in graduate school, advisors and mentors set the tone for student experiences, and positive faculty support has the ability to shape student research and lives for the better. C2C honors professors who build inclusive cultures in their labs and classrooms, who support their students’ mental and emotional health, and who actively support their students’ scholarly pursuits. Selected faculty members are showcased via a broad campus poster campaign, individual profiles housed on the Office of Graduate Education website, and MIT News articles.
On April 11, a celebration was held to honor all past Committed to Caring awardees, as well as the 28 new awardees, including DMSE professors Harry Tuller and Ju Li.
