Each participant in the Leadership Development Program for Executives will be matched up with a mentor based on their identified areas for growth and development. This experience will range from 10-20% of the participant’s time for a period not to exceed three months (preferably between Jan. and May).  The exact scope and sequence of the assignment will be negotiated with the mentor and endorsed by the immediate supervisor.

Mentors may be within the division but may also come from across the university and from other institutions.
