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 2012 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, 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 both virtually and in-person. As a participant, you’re provided coffee cards and lunch cards to enjoy during meetings between you and your mentor/mentee (either in-person or virtually). 

For this academic semester, Fall 2020, Mines GEM program has partnered with the new Mines Mentoring Program to utilize a more structured and organized matching platform to maximize your networking opportunities and options. This new platform is being used on a trial basis and we will be requesting feedback on the new platform and programming from graduate student participants soon! *Survey coming soon*

If you have question or concerns about the mentoring program, please contact the GSG Academic Chair.
