2013-2014 Program History and Success

The 2013-2014 L.A.W.R. Mentorship program was initiated in 2013 by Erin Lennon. Erin graduated with a Ph.D. in Soil & Biogeochemistry in June 2014. Erin Lennon on the success of the 2013-2014 program:

 “ We had equal grad student representation across all three LAWR graduate groups…Of the mentees who were able to meet with their mentors at least once, 100% felt that the mentorship was helpful.”

Two anonymous personal testaments from undergraduate mentees on the 2013-2014 program:

"I really appreciated this program as meeting with my mentor helped me understand some of the basics of grad school and the future I should pursue."
"My mentor is incredibly helpful. She helped me plan my classes for next quarter and even helped me find work in a lab."
