“If I am walking with two other men, each of them I will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them, and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself.”


Roles of Mentors

We view the program’s dual mentorship model as a distinguishing feature that is designed to enable you to flourish as an aspiring researcher in ways that would not be possible in many other doctoral programs. As is true for all relationships, you must be capable of deploying the very best communication strategies to maintain productive working relationships with your mentors and other colleagues. We think it is vitally important for you to know explicitly what we expect of individuals who agree to serve as your mentors. As the program evolves, please always feel free to offer suggestions for improvement and to share best practices observed when working with mentors.
