“I really enjoyed my experience with my peer advisor. I found her knowledgeable about the resources available at the university, encouraging and supportive. It was especially nice to just have someone I could talk to about my experience and I could tell that they genuinely wanted to help me. I had a great experience and would definitely talk to my advisor again.”
The G2G are current graduate students from various departments across U of T who have completed the Grad CRC’s conflict resolution training program. You can talk to a G2G about any academic issue – no matter how small (or big!). E.g. not seeing eye-to-eye with your supervisor or a lab partner, feeling unsure about your academic progress, or wondering how to start a conversation about requesting time off or modifying a research deadline.
