The Yale Geology and Geophysics Undergraduate/Graduate Mentoring Program

50 graduate students in the G&G department have graciously volunteered to mentor any undergrads that are interested in geology, geophysics, or environmental science.
This program is meant to accomplish the following:
  • Foster a stronger relationship between the undergraduate and graduate communities within the G&G department.
  • Encourage research and academic endeavors based upon your current interests and based upon interests you have yet to discover!
  • Expand the interests of undergraduates and graduates through conversation and interaction.
  • Give undergraduates the opportunity to work side-by-side with fantastic, knowledgeable, hard-working graduate students, learning important skills for scientific research, college, and the future.
  • Help Yale graduate students understand what it is like to be a Yale undergraduate student (The program goes both ways!)
  • Hold program-wide gatherings including special colloquia and socials.
  • Set an unprecedented standard for scientific mentoring at Yale.
  • Give you an excuse to hang out with the G&G department even more.

Just follow these easy steps, by Friday, September 28th:
