Graduate Foundation Seminars
opportunities for current graduate students
The purpose of the Graduate Foundation Seminars is to provide graduate students who are working with our undergraduates through retreats, service programs, mentoring roles and other formational activities, an opportunity to learn more about how Boston College approaches Student Formation. While many of you work side by side with campus ministers and other administrators at BC, we realize that it is often YOU (the graduate students) who are most in direct contact with the students and serve as primary mentors and conversation partners throughout their BC experience. Former graduate students have often shared that while they receive excellent training around their specific program or area, they would benefit from some larger discussions that deal with BC student culture, traditions and our Ignatian approach to the work we do in University Mission & Ministry. These seminars were designed to do just that; provide an opportunity for conversation around how we all can contribute to the formation of our undergraduate students. We also hope that these lunches will provide you with the chance to meet other graduate students who work within the division and provide you with another layer of colleagues and support as you serve our students.
The details of the seminars are as follows:
In 2012 the sections were be facilitated by:
- Burt Howell, Director, Intersections
- Kerry Cronin, Associate Director, Lonergan Institute & Fellow for the Center for Student Formation
- Mike Sacco, Director, Center for Student Formation
- Carole Hughes, Senior Associate Dean, Dean of Students Office
Each seminar section will meet four times, for 90 minutes per session. A substantial lunch will be provided at each session.
Please check back in late Summer to register for Fall 2013.
