Abstract: Strong mentorship has been linked to enhanced self-efficacy, persistence, productivity, and career satisfaction. Positive mentorship is often cited as the most important factor in degree attainment, publishing research, and serving as role models for others. In this session, participants will learn about evidence-based programs for improving mentoring relationships and will develop concrete action plans for their campuses to leverage these resources.
