Great Expectations: Mentoring Graduate Students

October 27, 2016
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Milbank Chapel at Teachers College, 525 W 120th St, New York, NY 10027

Great Expectations explores common tensions that arise between advisors and their advisees. The sketch depicts two different mentoring relationships, allowing a comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. It also raises questions about the ways in which problems that emerge within a mentoring dyad might affect departmental climate more generally. See a more detailed description of this performance on CRLT website.

This event is one of several featured performances by the University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT) Theatre Players from October 27-28. The CRLT Players will visit Columbia University to deliver high-energy, interactive performances that open up conversations among faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, and academic administrators about diversity and inclusive teaching on campus.

Sponsored by the Columbia Center for Teaching and Learning, the Office of the Provost, the Columbia University Medical Center Diversity Deans, the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Diversity and Inclusion, the Office of University Life, and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
