Graduate Student Mental Health and the Role of the Advisor
Please join us for a special Timely Topics session with Provost Carl Lejuez on graduate student mental health. This session is designed for faculty advisors and will discuss the ethic of care involved in the advisor/advisee relationship, how it is vital for student productivity and well-being, and how to support an advisee who seems to be struggling. We will cover what questions you can/should ask and what to do with the information you receive. The guidance shared will also be informed by data gathered by Student Health and Wellness (SHaW), including what graduate students want advisors to know about challenges they face and how advisor support could be transformative.
