The blossoming of cooperation between the U.S. and Canada
The United States and Canadian nuclear industries used to be an example of how two independent teams of engineers facing an identical problem—making electricity from uranium—could come up with completely different answers. In the 1950s, Canada began designing a reactor with tubes, heavy water, and natural uranium, while in the U.S. it was big pots of light water and enriched uranium.
But 80 years later, there is a remarkable convergence. The North American push for a new generation of nuclear reactors, mostly small modular reactors (SMRs), is becoming binational, with U.S. and Canadian companies seeking markets and regulatory certification on both sides of the border and in many cases sourcing key components in the other country.

A great mentoring situation can pave the way for success out of undergraduate or graduate school. Likewise, a poor or unhealthy mentoring relationship can cause lasting negative consequences on the students. Many times these interactions go undiscussed, and one goal of this workshop is to empower students to talk about and take charge of unhealthy mentoring relationships. This student and faculty-led workshop will explore multiple facets of this relationship, including how to identify the right mentor for you, what it means to maintain a good student-mentor relationship, how to identify unhealthy situations, and what resources are available to students who may find themselves in such situations. This workshop will include panel discussion, small-group discussion, panelist-led role-playing, and an open Q&A.
