The Graduate Mentoring Center

To provide graduate students mentorship through various programs and events that support their successful degree completion and entry into the professoriate and/or other professions.

To develop and help graduate an intentional community of scholars who are culturally diverse and competent, mindful, and who consistently produce innovative research and creative works that have viable and sustainable impact on their communities.

Programs are designed to create success through community-based and culturally responsive approaches. They fit within one or more of the following five tenets: Balance, Community, Culture, Mentorship, and Scholarship.

Together these five tenets and the programs offered through them form five holistic strands for understanding graduate student experiences and assisting them, postdoctoral fellows, staff, faculty, and alumni to create and sustain viable mentoring relationships and communities during and after Indiana University.
