The MPSA has two mentoring programs. The mentoring reception is held on Friday at the MPSA Conference in April. We assign each mentor to a specific table where (s)he can talk with a small group of graduate students. In the academic year mentoring program, the MPSA matches mentors and mentees. This structured program requires a ten hour commitment.
Working Groups, or a conference within a conference, are when Faculty volunteer to organize panels for groups of scholars interested in the same topic.
Professional Development sessions are roundtables in areas like teaching, public awareness, etc. Faculty may serve on Professional Development Sessions.
A Dine-Around is a social part of the conference program that allows conference colleagues to gather for dinner to discuss professional topics in a small, intimate dining setting. The dinners can range in size from groups of 6-20 attendees.
If you are interested, please volunteer for one of these mentoring programs.
