Graduate Experience Mentoring (GEM) program

GSG offers the Graduate Experience Mentor (GEM) program to enhance the educational, social, and personal health of our graduate student community. GEM was developed by graduate students in 2021 to help acclimate incoming graduate students with the Mines community. Through participation in GEM, incoming graduate students are connected with current graduate students in similar academic disciplines and by similar interests, providing a knowledgeable resource for navigating the administrative, academic and social aspects of the Mines community.

GSG’s GEM program participants are invited to attend social events throughout the semester. As a participant, you are provided with lunch cards, coffee cards to help you enjoy your mentor/mentee meeting, and exclusive events to GEM participants. We hope you will participate in our Fall 2023 GEM program! 

If you have questions about the GEM program, please contact the GSG Academic Chair.

2021 GEM participants/event

It is typical to feel lost especially for graduate students. Some of us are in our second/third year while others are just embarking on this journey. GEM gives us an opportunity to help each other, and be there for each other to really build a community. It is fun to get together and chat about research, life, and a lot more.
