Continuing Students

Dr. Alberto Ledesma(link sends e-mail), the graduate diversity director for the Arts & Humanities in the College of Letters and Science, provides support to continuing graduate students in the division. Support varies depending upon each student’s needs. For example, guidance can take the form of advising or mentoring. Advising topics may include applying for extramural resources, advocating on behalf of a student, facilitating the use of campus resources, enhancing one's future career choices, preparing for job interviews, or developing job search skills.

Mentoring may involve working closely with a graduate student over time on academic, financial or social issues.The graduate diversity director is available to meet with A&H graduate students either individually or in small groups to provide specific information or to develop particular skills that enhance one's experience at Berkeley and beyond.
