Academic Support

Mentorship in Graduate School

Mentor/mentee relationships are as different as the people involved, but at the core, the relationship is synergetic, with both parties engaging in an educational, social, and intellectual relationship.

The StAAR Center Graduate Resources

The Student Accessibility and Academic Resources (StAAR) Center team understand the particular needs and challenges of graduate students and have developed programming to address those concerns from a strength-based and process-oriented approach.

Students interested in pursuing a career in academia or teaching have many opportunities at the departmental level to practice and expand their skills as teaching assistants.
