The mentoring program will run from Summer 2013- Summer 2014
Recruitment will take place in the spring 2013 semester.
In collaboration with APAC, UIAAAN will recruit alumni and students for the program, matching pairs as best as possible along similarities in academic major, professional field, ethnic background, etc.
The goal for the first year is to have 10 mentor/ mentees pairs. We cannot guarantee that all requests for a mentor can be accommodated.
The UIAAAN Director of Programming will serve as the primary point of contact and organizer for the program, with advisement from the Board and APAC.
UIAAAN will outline guidelines, expectations, and parameters for the mentors and mentees.
UIAAAN will coordinate programs for mentor/ mentee matches including, but not limited to: a launch event in summer 2013 in Chicago; event during fall 2013; and end of the year recognition in 2014.
UIAAAN will gather feedback on the program in December 2013 and Summer 2014 in order to make recommendations and/or revisions
