Mentoring Program

Sex & Gender Section Mentorship Program – please participate as a faculty mentor or a grad student mentee!

Every year, the Graduate Student Concerns committee for our section coordinates a popular mentorship program.  We match graduate students with faculty mentors, who then meet up at ASA.  Students have used this opportunity to learn about academic and professional resources and receive professional advice.  Often, long-lasting professional relationships are formed.  We match up 1, 2 or 3 students with a faculty member, who may choose the number of student mentees and, if more than 1, may meet with students either individually or in a group

Here is a short survey for signing up and can be used by students and prospective faculty mentors.  We will accept responses until July 6th, and will form groups and notify participants via email by July 13th.  After receiving your mentor/mentee connections, please contact them directly in order to schedule your meetings during ASA.

Thanks for participating in this program.  If you have any questions, please contact the co-graduate student reps Apoorva Ghosh ( and LaToya Council (
