Mentoring Scenario 2
Description of the Problem
You are a third-year graduate student working in theory. Your research professor has not provided you with a problem, and seems uninterested in the work you are doing on your own.
- What should you do?
- What commitments were made to this student when she was accepted as a thesis student?
- What kind of supervision should a graduate student expect from a thesis advisor?
- Should a student expect substantive and appropriate help from an advisor, or are there different supervision styles, all of which are appropriate?
