Community-Building Gatherings & Funding
To facilitate community building within the program and support structured mentoring interactions between mentees and their mentors, Pathways organizes several scheduled events (e.g., an initial welcome reception, faculty experiences panel, student workshops, mentoring partner social events and end-of-the-year reception event) to facilitate regular communication among the larger cohort of mentees and mentors.
At the start of each semester, mentees commit to attending at least two professional development events each semester. Program coordinators (i.e., Pathways graduate assistants and Graduate School Faculty Fellow) document student attendance for student eligibility for small grant funding.
