Upcoming Events

  • Mentoring Workshop Series

    Elements of Effective Mentoring

    Friday, Nov. 21 | 2-3 pm | Edmon Low Library Browsing Room

    Though everyone approaches mentoring differently, there are some common themes that most mentoring philosophies share.  Workshop participants will discuss what has proven effective in their own mentoring while exploring what they can learn from others.  Participants will begin to develop their own mentoring philosophies.

    Optional Reading: In Nature’s Guide for Mentors, Adrian Lee, Carina Dennis and Philip Campbell look at what makes a good mentor, noting that “having a good mentor early in your career can mean the difference between success and failure in any field.”  In the same document, Jeffrey Scott Coker and Eric Davies offer “Ten Time-Saving Tips for Undergraduate Research Mentors.”

About Scholar Development

The Henry Bellmon Office of Scholar Development and Undergraduate Research has long been a national leader and innovator in scholar development and, more recently, undergraduate research. For over 25 years, our office has prepared students for the future, whether in competition for prestigious national and international fellowships, admission to top graduate schools, securing highly competitive jobs, or attaining the skills required to grow as a leader. The past has taught us that diverse programs, targeted to a wide range of majors, year classifications, and interests, has been the most successful way to elevate a large number of students’ educational experience. 

OSU’s commitment to highly motivated students has been nothing short of phenomenal. Our office has prepared and supported 72 major fellowship winners, 1,471 Wentz Research Scholars, 778 Freshman Research Scholars, 3,334 Wentz Leadership Scholars, 625 Wentz Music Scholars, and nearly $1,000,000 worth of other scholarship support, totaling over $19 million in awards.

Our office enhances undergraduate opportunity, encourages student-faculty mentoring, and promotes retention through scholarship/fellowship success, undergraduate research, international experience, and individual/institutional recognition. We hope you will join our team, as student, faculty or supporter, in broadening OSU’s reputation as a top school for scholars who develop their academic abilities in exceptional ways, increasing the national visibility of our students, university, and state.
