IT Mentoring Program is looking for mentors and mentees!

Hello Campus Supervisors:

Although you might not be an IT person on this campus, you might supervise someone who is.  Can you distribute this to IT people in your units?  It’s a great opportunity to learn more about this campus and share IT knowledge with the new IT people who are coming to work here.

Hello Future Mentors and Mentees,

Have you wanted to participate in a campus-wide mentoring program? The UW-IT Campus Mentoring program is preparing to kick off its 2018-2019 cohort and we’re looking for your participation! The program will match mentors and mentees together who will then establish clear expectations and goals for the mentoring relationship. The year will consist of a series of sponsored events to support and grow mentoring relationships and cross-campus collaboration. To signup, just fill out a mentor or mentee survey (below).

There are no specific requirements for being a mentor or a mentee.  We’d recommend folks participate as mentors if you have been on a campus a few years. We’d recommend considering becoming a mentee if you are new to campus, looking to prepare yourself for career movement, or just want to work with someone new!

Who: Anyone interested in being a mentor or mentee!

When: Fall 2018 to Spring 2019

Why: Expand your personal network, improve cross-campus collaboration, and work with other IT folks to improve your own skill set.
