Staff Academic Advising Questions
We are here to help! E-mail NCGradAdvising@asu.edu
with questions related to policies and procedures to help you navigate graduate school successfully.
SJHR Canvas Organization
Current announcements, program newsletters, past justice briefings, upcoming events, and many more program features and details can be found in the SJHR Canvas organization, also called the "SJR Canvas Student Engagement Site". All new students are added to the organization upon their first semester and will receive an email invitation to join. If you are a current student and do not have access to the organization please email the program director to receive the invite, Tricia.M.Redeker-Hepner@asu.edu.
SJHR Student Listserv
All students are automatically enrolled in the SJHR student listserv. The listserv is the primary way that information is distributed to students, from newsletters and flyers for upcoming events, to professional opportunities like jobs, conferences/workshops, and internships.
What is an SJHR Graduate Mentor?
SJHR Graduate Mentors are returning MA SJHR students who volunteer to help their peers navigate ASU, the Program, and grad school in general. SJHR Graduate Mentors are also willing to help BA JHR students who are considering graduate studies.
Who can be an SJHR Graduate Mentor?
Current MA SJHR students in good academic standing, who have successfully completed at least one year in the Program, can become Mentors.
What kind of commitment am I making?
As an SJHR Graduate Mentor, you are committing to making yourself available to your peers (especially new students), and/or to JHR undergrads, to answer their questions, encourage their success, and help build our community. You must be able to respond to emails in a timely fashion and be open and available to others. We ask that you commit to at least one full semester.
Why should I consider serving as an SJHR Graduate Mentor?
Mentoring experiences contribute to your own skills and development, helping you excel in graduate school and beyond. Peer mentoring helps create and sustain community and solidarity, making our program a more welcoming and supportive place for all. Serving as a mentor encourages you to build better relationships with faculty and advising staff as you find ways to help your peers. Mentoring can enhance your own academic, research, professional, and social networks. Finally, mentoring helps build your CV/resume and gives your professors more to say about you in their letters of recommendation for jobs, internships, PhD programs, award nominations, and more!
