Mentoring Academy kicks off Sept. 30; three sessions planned

The fall Mentoring Academy will feature three two-hour sessions on Sept. 30, Oct. 14 and Nov. 4.

The Mentoring Academy, sponsored by the Center for Mentoring, is designed to develop  skills in several mentoring competency areas: Maintaining Effective Communication Aligning Expectations, Assessing Understanding, Addressing Equity and Inclusion, Fostering Independence, Promoting Professional Development and Articulating Your Mentoring Philosophy and Plan

These sessions will be interactive, and will use case studies and small group activities. Participants will receive a digital badge for participating, and a Mentoring Academy credential will be awarded for successful completion of the series.

Joe Ayoob, a mentoring faculty fellow, will lead all three sessions. He will be joined in the final workshop by April Dukes of the Swanson School of Engineering.
