Student Outreach to Alumni Resources (SOAR) Dinner
Please join us for our Spring SOAR Mentorship Dinner on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The SOAR (Student Outreach to Alumni Resources) Mentorship Program is designed to foster mentorship opportunities across the Stanford Biosciences community. Alumni are a crucial part of what has made this program successful in past years. Your participation helps expose current graduate students and post-doctoral scholars to a wide range of career options and pathways.
Each alumnus will be seated at a table with 1-2 faculty member(s) and 4-6 students. Alumni participation in table discussions will be an important part of this event.
