CEP Mentor-Protégé Program

2019 INFormation

The Graduate Student

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 personnel, as well as junior and senior faculty to participate in this mentoring program.
