July Monthly Highlight- AOS Mentorship ProgramJuly 31, 2021
The University of Wisconsin Madison Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Graduate Student Association (referred to as the GSA) began a mentorship program last year between graduate and undergraduate students. Looking to foster stronger relationships between the student bodies within the department, the AOS Mentorship Program (AMP) helped connect the community during a difficult and remote learning environment. Pivoting to online meetings, mentors and mentees met for smaller one-on-one sessions and larger group discussions. This gave a chance for the graduate students to have mentorship experience and undergraduates to learn more about the department and get help with navigating college.
AMP will be continuing in the fall semester. Sign-ups will be available near the start of the semester for both graduate students to become mentors and undergraduate students to become mentees. We look forward to another great year.
