from tomorrow's professor


In June 2004 a workshop on Mentoring in Engineering was held at Stanford with the joint support of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM, administered by the NSF and funded by the White House) and the Stanford School of
Engineering. The two day workshop brought together graduate students and all levels of faculty for presentations and discussions on the needs, goals, methods, and best practices for mentoring students, junior faculty, and mid level faculty for academic careers. The emphasis was on mentoring members of underrepresented groups in academic engineering, especially women, but most of the topics are common to all interested in academic engineering careers. An excerpt on Women Professors With Children appears below followed by a copy of the table of contents of the proceedings. The full Workshop Proceedings are available at the workshop website in both pdf format for printing and html
format for Web viewing.
