The M.I.N.D. Presidential Seed Grant initiative seeks students, faculty, and staff to participate in a campus based, dual-directional mentoring program!

M.I.N.D. stands for the Mentoring Initiative for Networking and Development and while it has aspects of a traditional mentoring program, it has some unique goals.  These include:

  • Building mentoring relationships across traditional academic disciplines and interest areas and,
  • Dual directional mentoring.  In other words, faculty/staff can mentor students, but students can gain experience as a mentor by mentoring a faculty/staff member in an areas of their expertise.

Over the course of the semester, MIND will host two networking/growth events, one in March and one in April. During the semester MIND pairs (mentors & mentees) are encouraged to meet every 3-4 weeks.  As part of the program, each MIND participant will have access to 2 beverage vouchers.

We anticipate that the initial MIND cohort will consist of 30 MIND pairs and interested persons should e-mail John Fracchia for more information.
