Mentoring Grad Students Toward Many Possible Futures: A Workshop for Faculty Advisors

Saturday, 11 November 2023, 9:00-10:30am


Graduate students in musicology are now entering many lines of work. Faculty advisors need not be career experts to offer them substantive support.

In this interactive workshop for faculty advisors and directors of graduate studies, Danielle Fosler-Lussier, Director of the Imagined Futures Career Development Initiative at The Ohio State University, and Stacy Hartman, former Director of the PublicsLab, offer strategies for advising graduate students on a range of possible careers, inside or outside the academy.

Fosler-Lussier and Hartman will offer easy-to-use strategies for opening and sustaining conversations about career preparation and resources students can use to find jobs that align with their values, skills, and interests. They will also demonstrate how faculty can leverage their own networks for students’ benefit. Participants will have the opportunity to put what they learned into practice through case studies.
