CEP Mentor-Protégé Program

Saturday, November 14, 2020
10:00AM-2:00PM CENTRAL/NEW ORLEANS TIME
EVENT WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY


The CEP’s Mentor-Protégé Program (MPP) is intended to provide members of racially/ethnically minoritized populations with mutually beneficial mentoring relationships. To facilitate this process, protégés will be paired with mentors based upon primary scholarly and professional interests. Our objective is that this mentoring relationship will contribute to the protégé and mentor’s personal and professional development. The MPP highly encourages graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, administrators, student affairs professional, and faculty to participate in this mentoring program.

This event is sponsored by:


Who should attend:

  • You should participate as a protege if you are a member of a racially/ethnically minoritized population and are a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow.
  • You should participate as a mentor if you are a member of a racially/ethnically minoritized population and are an administrator, student affairs professional, or faculty member.
