How do you anticipate and navigate the unknown or the “hidden curriculum” of graduate school? Students of color may encounter situations they are not expecting or prepared to handle as they enter graduate school.

Examples of topics we will discuss:

> Funding

> How to find a mentor

> How to maximize your mentor-mentee relatio

> Building a network

> Managing (your advisor, etc.) up

> Any other topics you want to discuss

This will be a casual conversation, round-table style so please bring your questions and wisdom to share at this session. Join us on Thursday, November 10th from 12PM to 1:30PM.
