Effective mentoring is good for mentors, good for students, and good for the discipline. Therefore, how to mentor graduate student is one of the most concerned problems for young teachers. Prof. Guang Yang, Prof. Zhigang Guo and Prof. Wen Wang gave young faculty a talk on this topic on June 2, 2017 at the round meeting room of school of life science. Prof. Yang said that faculty mentors play a crucial role in the success of graduate students. Just as students have different learning styles, the skill sets and aptitudes of mentors are as varied as mentors themselves. There is no foolproof recipe. Prof. Wang told us how to mentor graduate student properly based on her experience.
Finally, Prof. Guo introduced the general guidelines for mentors. All faculty benefited greatly by- attending this symposium.
