GPS Pathways | Mentors

The GPS Pathways Program is driven by our GPS Pathways Mentors. This senior group of graduate students meets regularly with Pathways Scholars in small groups, acts as a resource for all Scholars, and plan and execute various professional development and social activities.

The GPS Pathways Mentors also act as an advisory board to our leadership team in the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

For questions about GPS Pathways, reach out to one of our mentors, or email gpspathways@rice.edu.
