Supporting Graduate Students in Challenging Times

Date Recorded: Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Time Recorded: 12:00 pm–1:00 pm (EDT)

Presented by: Keep Teaching Faculty Development Group

While we hope that graduate school is an extremely rewarding academic experience for all our students, it can also be stressful and challenging. The past year of the pandemic has added significant additional stresses to the graduate experience whether it be from social and physical isolation to setbacks in research progress to concerns about health and well-being. These stresses are also felt by faculty members who are trying to fulfill their own professional and personal responsibilities during the pandemic while mentoring their students.

In this session, Anna Barone from Student Care and Advocacy, Stephanie Stama from Counseling and Psychological Services, Leah Zimmerman from Student Disability Resources, and Sarah Ades from the Graduate School will discuss how mentors can support their graduate student mentees experiencing challenges brought on or exacerbated by the pandemic and how their offices can provide additional resources and support.
