MPSA 2021-2022 Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program

The deadline for mentor and mentee applications for the 2021-2022 Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program has passed. MPSA staff is currently matching mentors and mentees for the program.

By mid-August, 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 with their assigned mentor and to begin coordination of an initial meeting to establish expectations for program participation (using an MPSA-provided template). If you applied to be a mentor or mentee for the program, please watch your email for more information.

This program is 100% outside of the annual conference programming and conference participation is not required to participate in the Academic Year-Long Mentoring Program.
