Mentoring

Loyola faculty work with graduate students as academic advisers, career advisers, and teaching mentors, and they play an essential role in the professional mentoring and coaching of graduate students. The following resources may help graduate students begin conversations with potential mentors.

  • How to seek coaching as a graduate student: “The Benefits of Coaching Conversations” by Deborah S. Willis. Click here.
  • “Great Mentoring in Graduate School: A Quick Start Guide for Proteges,” by Laura Gail Lunsford, PhD & Vicki L. Baker, PhD: Click here.

Graduate students also support one another. The Loyola History Graduate Student Association began a peer mentoring program, pairing new students with more advanced students, in fall 2019. For more information about this effort, contact Sophia Croll, LUC History PhD student.
