Connecting. Building. Engaging.

The National Advisory Council Committee on Human Resources: Administration, Staff Recruitment, and Professional Development (HR Committee) is pleased to announce the inaugural NCORE Mentoring Program.


What is the program?
The purpose of the NCORE Mentoring Program is to foster and promote formal mentor/mentee relationships among NCORE attendees. For the first year, the program will target connecting entry/mid-level professionals with senior level professionals. Both the mentor and mentee are intended to benefit from this relationship and learn from each other.

How are mentors and mentees selected?
The HR Committee will identify 10 mentors and 10 mentees for this year, taking into consideration many factors (e.g., work experience, interests, and expertise) that are important components of successful developmental, mentoring relationships.

What are the expectations?
Mentors and mentees must attend 2018 NCORE and participate in a workshop and orientation on Wednesday, May 30*. Additionally, mentors and mentees must a) be invested in the success of the mentor/mentee relationship; b) schedule contacts/meetings/calls at least once a quarter; c) serve in their role as either a mentor or mentee June 1 – May 31, although participants have the personal choice to extend the mentoring relationship; and d) complete any assessments, reflections, and/or evaluations.
*An exception may be made for individuals who have a NCORE workshop conflict.
