The Mentorship Institute for Staff and Faculty is a once-a-year professional development experience for coordinators of mentorship programs. The Mentorship Institute is taking place virtually on June 22 and 23, 2021.
Thank you to those that have registered to facilitate and/or share more about their programming through the Concurrent Session portion of the Mentorship Institute!
While this event is being hosted online, it is being planned on the unceded territory of the Wendat, the Seneca and most recently Mississaugas of the Credit River. We know that there can be no leadership without reconciliation and are centering that realization while planning this mentorship institute on this land.
Register to participate under PROGRAM REGISTRATION.
All U of T faculty, staff and students who are interested in coordinating peer mentorship programs are eligible to attend.
Interested members of the community are invited to attend. Keep in mind that the content of this event is focused on U of T community needs.
