Beronda Montgomery: Growing from adviser to mentor

MSU News - March 9, 2017 - 1:22pm
I remember the great responsibility I felt when the first graduate student decided to join my research team. In preparing for her arrival, I highlighted the list of course requirements for her doctoral program and quickly outlined the first biochemistry experiments that she would conduct.I was cautiously optimistic that we would be positioned to make significant inroads in understanding how plants perceive what is going on around them to inform which activities and behaviors best situate them for success and productivity based on the environments in which they exist, which is one focus of my scientific work. As the student began to work diligently in the laboratory, it quickly became clear that my preparation had positioned me to serve as an adviser, but not necessarily a mentor. These are two names that are often used interchangeably to describe what happens when engaging with those individuals we supervise. However, I have come to fully understand that advising does not equal mentoring. Advising at its core is offering advice or factual information that would benefit any individual on a defined course of action - and I was clearly prepared to do that valiantly. I knew exactly what classes a student seeking a doctoral degree in my student's chosen discipline needed to take.

Elizabeth Schondelmayer: A lesson in every day

MSU News - March 9, 2017 - 12:44am
When you think of England, what comes to mind? Double-decker buses? Noel Gallagher? The Tower of London? If you had asked me this question a year ago, my mind would have wandered in a similar direction (plus or minus a few Monty Python actors or aging rock musicians). Since visiting the country over the summer, however, my answer would be totally different.
