Staff Mentorship Pilot Program

Mentoring graphicThe TMCC Staff Mentorship Pilot Program was created by the Student Services and Diversity (SSD) Culture Task Force Committee. This program is designed to provide administrative/classified faculty members the opportunity for professional development by creating supportive relationships that will enhance the skills and knowledge of its participants. This is a voluntary program where participants can choose to be a mentor and/or a mentee. The mentorship program will assist in fostering positive working relationships across the Student Services and Diversity Division and serve as a catalyst to enhancing our culture at TMCC.

The Mentorship Program is a six-month program where mentors and assigned mentees will be encouraged to meet an hour a month along with the option to participate in a monthly one-hour workshop series.

Participants will be required to complete a one-hour Mentoring Orientation.

Should applicants request for a preferred mentor or mentee, the Task Force Committee will do their best to match the needs and request of each applicant, however any requests put forward by an applicant is not guaranteed.
