Co-sponsored by MICHR and the Office of Faculty Development, Medical School
The 2019 Mentoring Forum will feature a presentation Becky Wai-Ling Packard, Professor of Psychology and Education at Mount Holyoke College. She previously served as the Associate Dean of Faculty, the founding director of the Teaching and Learning Initiative, and the Director of the Weissman Center for Leadership. In those roles she oversaw faculty mentoring, an array of curricular/co-curricular programs, and a number of new initiatives. Packard's research focuses on mentoring, with an emphasis on how individuals such as first-generation college students, women, and persons of color construct mentoring networks as they navigate complex pathways toward higher education and work. She frequently speaks on these topics at the local, state, and national level. She also offers expert advice on ways to design mentoring and advising initiatives for students and faculty.
Check-in and a light breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m., with Dr. Packards’ presentation starting at 9:00 a.m. with the 2019 Mentor Awards ceremony immediately following.
