CPAP would like to thank its inaugural cohort of mentors for volunteering their time and expertise to help early and mid-career students in their professional development, and would also like to congratulate those lucky 5 students who landed a spot in this year’s pilot program.
The first training session featured a dinner with students and mentors, along with a very special training session presented by Dr. Melissa Lubin entitled “Understanding Mentoring and Coaching. The students also discussed program expectations, completed a professional writing exercise, and worked through mentoring program agreements and documents.
CPAP would also like to thank the faculty and staff who made this program possible, including but not limited to:
- MPA Program Director: Joe Rees, PhD
- MPA Mentoring Program Director, Leisha LaRiviere, MPA
- Trainer for first meeting: Melissa Lubin, PhD
