Mentoring opportunity for all faculty and staff

January 7, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Are you looking to connect professionally while working remotely? Do you need career guidance?

The U-M Micro-Mentoring Program is strongly encouraged for all staff and faculty. The goal of this program is to increase one’s professional networks and provide a platform to foster the sharing of internal expertise and experiences. 

Micro-Mentoring is a one-time meeting designed to:

  • Network with a variety of faculty and staff across the university and Michigan Medicine,
  • Receive support and flourish professionally with the assistance of seasoned colleagues,
  • Enhance your CV and expand your professional development as a leader, and
  • Engage in dialogue on our discussion boards and gain access to relevant mentoring resources.

Why become a mentor?

The goal of the Micro-Mentoring program at U-M is to increase one’s professional networks and provide a platform to foster the sharing of internal expertise and experiences.

Who should become a mentor?

Micro-Mentoring is open to all current faculty and staff at U-M. We encourage people who have at least two years of work experience to consider signing up as a mentor — there is so much information that others can learn from you!

Time commitment

This program pairs mentees with a different mentor for one-hour every 45 days based on profile compatibility. That’s it! A one-hour meeting to connect with new people across the university.

This program pairs mentor/mentee relationships every 45 days based on profile compatibility. You are encouraged to register for the program now; matching of mentors and mentees will begin in late January.
