The transition to graduate life can be difficult for each new cohort of doctoral students who arrive in Ann Arbor each fall. New students must simultaneously learn (or re-learn) how to read, write, think, live in a new city, and engage in a new community. In response to these myriad challenges, several students from the 2017 Educational Studies cohort came together to create the ES Doctoral Peer Mentor Network, an organization meant to ease incoming students’ transition into graduate life and support their ongoing development throughout their time at the School of Education. The network is not meant to facilitate 1:1 mentoring, but rather to provide a community of more advanced students who support the flow of information about coursework, life at U-M, the trajectory towards candidacy, and other aspects of doctoral life. If you are interested in learning more about the Peer Mentor Network, or getting involved in any way, please contact es.phd.peermentor@umich.edu. 2017-2018 Peer Mentor Network: Meghan McDermott, Teaching and Teacher Education Amanda Ketner, Quantitative Research Methods (dual degree in Statistics) Bill Waychunas, Teaching and Teacher Education Elena Crosley, Math Education Jared Tenbrink, Science Education Julia Lindsey, Literacy, Language, and Culture Mike Ion, Math Education
