Staff Mentorship Program

The mentoring program supports the professional growth of Fresno State employees by pairing them with an experienced mentor who provides professional development, networking opportunities and assistance in achieving personal and professional goals. The program provides a supportive structure in which staff can cultivate contacts, explore challenges and design strategies for personal growth and professional development that align with their career goals at Fresno State.

Participants in the Mentor program will attend the annual mentorship summit (scheduled for October 23, 2015), monthly luncheons with guest speakers and training sessions to enhance knowledge about best practices in building a successful mentoring relationship.
