KU Staff Mentor Program Overview
The Staff Senate Professional Development Committee would like to announce the creation of a new “KU Staff Mentor Program” starting this fall. The newly launched “KU Staff Senate Mentor Program” combines elements of online communication and in-person events to promote connections between university staff.
The mission of this program is to provide support for professional development and career growth, while enhancing the solidarity and recognition of university employees.
The Staff Senate Professional Development Committee has partnered with the KU Alumni Association to use the online “KU Mentoring” platform as a network database for the mentor program. The database will serve as the starting point for anyone interested in getting involved. Staff who join the “KU Staff Senate Mentor Program” group will have access to seek out mentorship opportunities and indicate their support for their fellow colleagues.
Successful mentorship requires interpersonal interaction. In order to complement the online component of the program, the Professional Development Committee will be planning a series of events and meet-ups for staff to attend. Overall, the goal of this group is to facilitate knowledge sharing, build valuable skills, and strengthen healthy workplace relationships. The virtual and in-person elements of the program make it easy for everyone to be involved.
