As part of the NSF-funded Field-based Undergraduate Engagement through Research, Teaching, and Education (FUERTE) program at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) (NSF-1953492), we have developed a set of activities to help our direct mentors (e.g., graduate students and postdocs) hone their mentoring skills. FUERTE is a program designed to introduce under-represented undergraduates in STEM to field-based research in both terrestrial and aquatic environments at UCSB, a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). We aim to use practices of inclusive mentoring, to foster the use of growth mindset mentoring, and recognize the significance of intersectional identities. Since there is overlap between the FUERTE program and activities central to LTERs, we hope to share our FUERTE resources and activities, demonstrate an activity, and include time for discussion. As members of the SBC LTER community, we are excited to share our HSI-based activity with the broader LTER research community.
