Dear Students,
We are writing to invite you to participate in a focus group – a small discussion group—with your peers on the topic of student engagement related to spirituality, religion, and worldview. This focus group will take about 60 minutes and will include a meal.  This and other focus groups like it are part of a review that Student Affairs is conducting to help inform programs and services that could be offered in this area. Along with many of your peers, you will be asked about your perceptions of current engagement and possible future endeavors. Your views will be used to inform a workgroup that is considering options for future programming. All students who complete a focus group will be a awarded a $10 BruinCard credit for their participation.
We hope to hear from students who represent a wide spectrum of worldviews, including religious and nonreligious perspectives.  If you are interested in participating, please indicate your availability on the online survey form by copying and pasting the following link into your internet browser preferably before January 14th.   Focus group details will be emailed to selected participants.
We know your time is valuable and so are your ideas and insights on our campus community. We deeply appreciate your participation. We can promise a nice meal and a great conversation with your peers.
Thank you so much!
Dr. Anne Dela Cruz
Executive Director of Student Affairs Initiatives and Deputy Director to the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs

Entering Mentoring Training is a 10-week curriculum based on the model: "Entering Mentoring: A Seminar to Train a New Generation of Scientists," by J. Handlesman et al. 2009, developed at the University of Wisconsin.

The goals of the mentoring training are to guide mentors to 1) understand “scientific teaching” and apply it in mentoring, 2) build relationship based on trust and respect with a mentee, 3) understand issues related to mentoring diverse students, and 4) build community with other mentors.

The seminar is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars in the sciences and uses a student-centered, integrative approach. The Spring 2019 EMT RSVP survey is open. If you are interested in participating please complete the survey by February 27th, 2019.
