Mentoring

During the academic year 2020-21, I was selected as UCI’s Inclusive Excellence Ambassador and remotely mentored five incoming graduate students. I created a website collecting comprehensive info on various topics, including a pre-arrival checklist, life at UCI, and resources: https://sites.google.com/uci.edu/ariagolestani-iea/home
