Good supervision of graduate students improves graduate student learning, productivity and satisfaction with their experience at the University of Alberta. Mentorship goes beyond supervision to address the whole person and the life-long career choices ahead for the graduate students we supervise.

These pages host a collection of resources to help supervisors of graduate students achieve these goals. They include new podcasts on fostering a safe environment and video resources on effective remote supervision. Follow the links below to explore the resources.
