BIPOC Mentorship Program: Mentor application

Being a mentor provides an excellent opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise, increase networking, and self-reflection.

We are recruiting mentors who are faculty, administrators, industry experts, elders, and community members at large.

Role of mentors:

  • Provide guidance on mentee’s professional development goals as identified for academic and professional endeavors
