Mentorship in Higher Education Roundtable Conference 2020


The Mentorship in Higher Education Roundtable Conference brings together leaders at higher education institutions across the nation to share and present high-impact stories and best practices on developing and implementing mentorship programs.

During this two-day conference, program represenatives can expect to make meaningful connections with others in a similar capacity and engage in collaborative workshop activities and thoughtful discussions about how to scale their mentorship programs at their institutions. Participants must apply and one representative from each school will be selected to attend.

How do I apply?

Program respresentatives can apply through this application. Deadline to apply is Friday, March 27. The application period will close thereafter.
