Description: 
Research shows a high correlation between the quality of advising and student success.

Good advising is one of the most important determinants of graduate student and postdoc success and satisfaction.

Positive advising and mentoring of graduate and professional students fosters mutually beneficial relationships, leading to success for individual students and enhanced reputations for the graduate or professional programs. 

Resources

Supporting students, faculty and postdocs in their advising and mentoring relationships is a priority for the Graduate School and the University of Minnesota. The Dignity Project Work Group has developed a number of resources to help you get the most out of your relationship with your advisor.
