Partner with NAVCAP  
for graduate student success 

Learn about our 8-week University Pilot to create a transformative experience for your graduate students.

Our Purpose

To help graduate students have a transformative  experience for

program and post-degree success. Our 8-Week Navigating Mentorship program is inclusive of ALL grad students, but is designed with Black & Brown grad students in mind. We show grad students how to maximize mentor relationships, how to set expectations and take back their time, and how to reduce the stress of figuring out all the academic and nonacademic pieces that are so important for success. 

University Pilots Fall 2022

 Grad students in our PILOT experience student success coaching in tandem with our hands-on seminar and resources. We work with colleges & universities that want to help their graduate students build mentor networks and cultivate professional learning communities with other graduate peers. Prior to the pilot, we are offering a Navigating Mentorship high-level workshop Summer 2022/Fall 2022. This is a great risk-free opportunity that allows us to share our methodology with you. The only thing we ask for is participant feedback on what was most helpful.
