ASMu is starting a mentoring program for students within the MSE department. For this program, prospective MSE students and/or declared MSE underclassmen will be paired with an upperclassmen MSE student to develop inter-cohort boding and for underclassmen to learn more about the department and the opportunities available to them from their more experienced peers. The program features our own juniors and seniors in MSE who have experience and insight on various research topics and varying post-graduation plans.

Current underclassmen are encouraged to sign up as mentees to be paired up with a mentor in the department. This mentoring program has flexible expectations to allow for personalized 1-on-1 communication and mentoring styles that are suited for the mentor/mentee pair. At a minimum, mentors and mentees are expected to be in weekly-biweekly contact and discuss prompts shared by the program coordinators.

If you are interested in signing up as a mentee, please sign up using this link by Friday, March 17 so the mentor/mentee pairings can be communicated and get the program started. The sign-up also includes a link to slides created by the mentors for mentees to select their preference for a mentor based on common interests/future plans/identities, etc. We hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to increase involvement within the MSE department and expand your network through participating in this program. For your convenience, the links are included below as well
