Please join us February 27 at 5:00pm in the Winship Cancer Institute Auditorium C5012 for Emory Engaged: Mentoring Matters. As part of our ongoing dialogue about the residential liberal arts research university, the Commission on the Liberal Arts is partnering with the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence to present a panel on several current initiatives within the professional schools, the health sciences, and Emory College of Arts and Sciences that focus on student and faculty mentorship. Panelists will highlight some of what we are currently doing, as well as provide ideas for enhancing mentorship inclusive across students, faculty and across units. Panelists will speak on topics that include integrating and enhancing fundamental liberal arts values such as critical thinking; civic, community, global engagement; and innovation into mentorship.
We look forward to a dialogue between panelists and audience about Emory’s long history of engaging in mentorship and about how to share best practices across units. The goal is to build capacity so all students and faculty have an opportunity to be both mentee and mentor, to both succeed and support others in their quest to succeed.
