FSU Research Mentor Academy: Humanities

Summer 2024

June 3-5,

2:30pm - 4:30pm

Virtual Session, Registrants will be sent a Zoom link beforehand


Are you a faculty member serving as a Chair of a Dissertation Committee, do you mentor Honors in the Major or UROP students, or do you mentor junior Faculty or other scholars? To learn more about effective mentoring strategies with other colleagues in the Humanities disciplines, join this summer’s cohort of the FSU Research Mentor Academy. This workshop series is focused specifically on mentoring in the humanities, meeting virtually for three days, June 3rd, 4th, and 5th, at 2:30-4:30pm.

You are invited to attend the Upcoming Research Mentor Academy conducted by the Office of Research Development and the Office of Faculty Development and Advancement. Effective research mentoring relationships are critical to developing the next generation of researchers. The mission of the FSU research mentor academy is to promote a culture of support for research mentoring and to provide training in optimizing mentoring relationships for mentors with their mentees at all levels of their research careers. This mentor training is based on the research mentoring curricula, Entering Mentoring, an evidence-based curriculum from the Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research (CIMER), using an interactive approach that allows participants to explore an intellectual framework for research mentoring within a community of their peers. This approach provides mentors with opportunities for reflection and a forum to solve mentoring dilemmas and share successful mentorship strategies. The format is similar to a book club discussion and covers mentoring topics related to Aligning Expectations, Addressing Equity and Inclusion, Assessing Understanding, Fostering Independence, Maintaining Effective Communication, Promoting Professional Development, and Articulating Your Mentoring Philosophy and Action Plan.
