CIHE Mentoring Program

The ASHE Council for International Higher Education (CIHE) runs an annual Mentor Networking Program as part of the ASHE-CIHE Pre-conference Forum.

The main goal of the CIHE Mentor-Networking Program is to provide a structure that facilitates the creation of new connections and potential mentoring relationships between faculty, staff, researchers, and students who are interested in international/comparative higher education.

The Mentor-Networking Program values supportive, mutually beneficial, and authentic mentoring relationships where both the mentee and the mentor can be personally involved and become good listeners throughout a rewarding experience. The Program is based on the commitment to offering a safe platform that will encourage and promote ongoing learning and growth, both personally and professionally, to all our participants.

While authentic mentoring relationships take time and repeated encounters to develop, this Program engenders an initial meeting and opportunities for scholars at different career stages to network and develop relationships within the ASHE-CIHE community. In order to accomplish this goal, early- and later-career participants will be paired one-on-one or in small groups based on career and research interests. Masters and doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and early- and later-career researchers, practitioners, and faculty members are encouraged to participate.
