“One mentor is almost never adequate for the mentee. [The PMG] helped us to focus on what we could address”- Jennifer Glass, NORDP Board member and Mentoring Committee member.
The NORDP Mentoring Committee’s Peer Mentoring Groups* (PMG) provide an ideal platform for NORDP colleagues to learn from each other. NORDP Mentoring Committee currently has 7 PMGs Peer Mentoring Groups, based on the pillars of Research Development.
1. Career & Professional Development: exploring how to become more efficient and effective in our roles
2. Communication: promoting awareness of RD opportunities and publicizing research
3. Enhancing Collaboration: building collaborations and interdisciplinary research programs
4. Leadership & Management: leading in both official and unofficial capacities
5. Mentorship: discussing and supporting mentoring best practices for mentors and mentees
6. Proposal Development: supporting faculty grant seeking and increasing extramural funding
7. Strategic Planning & Advancement: guiding policy and planning for enhanced research and scholarship
