Please join the Graduate Mentoring Center in a conversation about mentoring Underrepresented Minority Graduate Students
“Mentorships center on an emotional commitment, which focuses on the protégé’s personal and professional growth. Mentoring relationships, by nature are reciprocal and more enduring than relationships with an academic advisor, supervisor, or dissertation chair” (Lunsford & Baker. Great Mentoring in Graduate School: A Quick Start for Protégés. Occasional Paper Series. Council of Graduate Schools. Number 4. September 2016. Page 3).

Past Events Highlights
Heavy rain on Friday night and early Saturday afternoon didn’t stop thousands of people from attending the 2016 Lotus World Music Festival in downtown Bloomington this past weekend. The festival, now in its 23rd year, ran from September 15 through September 18. This year, the IAUNRC was proud to sponsor performances by three groups: Söndörgo (Hungary), Aallotar (Finnish-American Folk), and Anda Union (Mongolia). Both Aallotar and Söndörgo gave multiple performances throughout the weekend. Anda Union only performed one set on Saturday evening.
On September 8, 2016, doctoral student Giorgi Papashvili gave a presentation for the Central Eurasian Colloquium titled “The Ethnographic Portrait of the Caucasus around 1900.” His talk focused mostly on paintings and portraits produced during the late 19th century by Georgian artists. He emphasized how outside cultural influences, mainly those from nearby Russia and Iran, played into the human “types” that were depicted in the various pieces.
