Mentorship is a stronger predictor of graduate student success than academic aptitude.
As a graduate student at ASU you should work on developing broad mentor networks. These should include formal one-on-one advisor relationships with faculty and professionals in your intended career fields, as well as informal peer mentoring groups for navigating graduate life.
The Graduate College facilitates connection to mentoring networks for scholarly and identity-based development.

The Graduate College supports the ASU community in understanding our various graduate populations’ mentoring needs and provides tools for academic units, graduate student organizations, and mentors seeking to develop or refine their own mentoring practices.
