Mentoring International Students
Please note that this seminar is for UC Davis faculty. Please refer to our event calendar for a list of events for students and postdoctoral scholars.
Mentoring can be a powerful tool in supporting graduate students with a wide variety of academic and cultural backgrounds. International students often face unique challenges in adapting to studying at universities in the United States, and developing mentoring skills focused on the international dimension in relationships can help support graduate student success.

Will this event count toward my eligibility for the MCT Wakeham Fellowship?
Yes. To be eligible to apply, faculty mentors must attend at least three of the five MCT workshops or panels offered during the 2017-2017 academic year.
Can I send a colleague or a graduate student mentee in my place?
Attendance by faculty colleagues or graduate student mentees, in lieu of the faculty mentor 's attendance, will not count toward MCT Wakeham Fellowship eligbility. Each faculty mentor must attend in person.
Where can I get more information about the MCT seminar series and fellowship program?
More information about both the seminar series and the fellowship program can be found on the UC Davis Graduate Studies Website.
