Issues in Graduate Student Advising
- What are common issues that you have encountered in advising and mentoring graduate students (and for students, issues encountered in being advised and mentored by faculty)?
- What has worked well for you in advising and mentoring graduate students (and for students, being advised and mentored)?
- What do you think are faculty training needs with regard to graduate student advising and mentoring (and for students, student training needs to maximize the advising/mentoring process)?
- Do you have any recommendations for the development of future policies or procedures related to graduate student advising?
While our sample sizes were relatively small, the issues and strategies identified in the Laurier context were supported by the broader educational literature. The following student and faculty documents summarize our findings (issues/strategies/process) and outline resources both available electronically and in hardcopy formats.
