We have heard time and time again from successful first generation college professionals that one of the most significant factors in navigating through their degree programs was having good mentorship. This is particularly salient in graduate/professional school where students are socialized in the implicit culture of their profession
We are looking for UCSF faculty and staff who understand the value of mentorship in academic and professional development and are interested in mentoring our first generation college students. If you are interested in learning more about mentoring opportunities, please contact us.
The UCSF Faculty Mentoring Program has developed a wonderful website filled with resources for the mentor. It's geared towards mentoring junior faculty, but can be easily applied to mentoring students and trainees, as well.
