  Mentoring Undergraduates Workshop  
(Seminar/Conference)

Drawing from multiple well established sources and programs, this free workshop will engage participants through interactive sessions on recognizing their expertise, exploring what a mentor is and is not, what a mentor does, and guidelines and best practices for mentoring undergraduate students. This year's focus will be mentoring diverse undergraduates in research with a focus on STEM disciplines, although the principles presented will be applicable broadly to other disciplines.

Dr. Isiah Warner, Vice President for Strategic Initiatives, Louisiana State University and A & M College, and Boyd Professor of the LSU System and Philip W. West Professor of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Louisiana State University, will deliver the keynote address entitled "Hierarchical Mentoring: fusing research, education, and mentoring to give undergraduates an opportunity for advancement in STEM disciplines".

This workshop is open to faculty, post doctoral fellows, and graduate students. A light continental breakfast will be available. Program capacity is 50, accepted on a first come, first served basis.
