Advising and Mentoring
The MARC-WSU program provides the support that students need to succeed. Mentoring can help with skill development, subject specific expertise, goal setting and career guidance. MARC-WSU trainees develop multiple mentoring relationships in the program. Each trainee works with graduate students, their research mentor, the MARC principle investigators (PIs), and their MARC-WSU peers. Trainees develop additional professional and mentoring relationships through other interactions such as within clubs or through professional societies.
