For First-Year Ph.D. Students

Through the Ph.D. Peer Mentoring Program, first-year Duke Ph.D. students can take part in small peer mentoring groups during their second semester on campus. Facilitated by trained peer mentoring fellows, these groups are designed to help new doctoral students flourish.

For Ph.D. Students at Any Stage

The Ph.D. Transitions Group Coaching Program invites Duke Ph.D. students to participate in semester-long small interdisciplinary groups of students at the same stage of their training. Each group is facilitated by a professional coach, who structures the conversations based on International Coaching Federation best practices.


Best Practices in Mentoring

Duke graduate students and postdocs can register for a free summer short course, Best Practices in Mentoring (GS990), through the Duke Graduate Academy. The course is led by Maria LaMonaca Wisdom, director of interdisciplinary mentoring and coaching programs.
