Mentorship and Advising

BU URBAN is committed to helping you succeed in graduate school and beyond. Mentorship and advising are key ingredients for graduate students to thrive. While all trainees have access to Faculty Advisors, Committees, departmental staff, and other allies across the university, BU URBAN provides an additional layer of mentorship and advising support through the Program Manager. Here’s how:

Semester Group Check-in’s: Each semester, Evan will organize small-group meetings for all trainees to check in and share updates on their research, professional development, science communication, and partnership-related activities. Each trainee is requested to participate in one (1) group check-in each semester. See monthly trainee email for the link to sign up.

Weekly Zoom Office Hours: Evan will be available for 1 hour each week on zoom for drop-in office hours. Stop by to say hi, ask questions, or share updates! See monthly trainee email for dates and the zoom link.

One-on-one Meetings: Evan’s dynamic availability can be found here. Trainees can book zoom meetings or phone calls with Evan at any time, for any reason.
