Faculty Mentoring Forum

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Faculty Mentoring Forum remains open to all faculty members and post-doctoral fellows across campus. Mentors, as a panel and individually, answer questions from attendees about career issues, work-life balance, advancing research and scholarship, as well as any question presented by the audience. 

“Mentoring brings us together – across generation, class, and often race – in a manner that forces us to acknowledge our interdependence, to appreciate, in Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words, that “we are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny.” In this way, mentoring enables us to participate in the essential but unfinished drama of reinventing community, while reaffirming that there is an important role for each of us in it.”
Marc Freedman – Founder and CEO of Encore.org, Social Entrepreneur of the Year by the World Economic Forum (2014)
