Save the Dates: Expand your network by participating in the NORDP Peer Mentoring Groups!

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
