MPSA Mentoring Programs  

MPSA Mentoring Reception at Annual Conference 

Mentors will guide conversations with no more than four mentees to discuss current research and professional aspirations. The Mentoring Reception will be held Friday, April 6, 2018 6:30 - 7:30pm at the Palmer House Hilton. Short biographical sketches of this year's mentors will be posted at www.MPSAnet.org in mid-January 2018 and potential mentees will be encouraged to sign up online for specific mentors at that time.  

MPSA Academic Year Mentoring (2018-2019)

Please note that conference participation is not required to participate in the Academic Year Mentoring Program. MPSA staff will match one mentee with each mentor based on the information provided by both parties. In March 2018, both parties will receive a notification containing name(s), contact information, and brief biographical sketches. Mentees will be asked to contact mentors within one week to establish contact. If selected for this program, mentees will work remotely (phone calls or via Skype/Google Hangouts, etc.) with faculty in a structured format over the 2018-2019 academic year. Total commitment is approximately 10 total hours.  

MPSA staff will review mentee candidate applications and place with appropriate mentors as available. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
