On January 25th-27th, 2023, the Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring was able to attend the first Annual National Mentoring Summit back in person since the COVID-19 pandemic! We were thrilled to connect again with the mentoring community, share our most recent work, and hear from other researchers and practitioners in the field.
The Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring hosted 2 workshops. The first (led by Megyn Jasman, Alexandra Werntz, and Jean Rhodes), covered innovative strategies for technology-enhanced peer mentoring programs at the university level. The workshop included effective components of college peer mentoring programs, findings from a pilot program that leveraged technology, and discussions with attendees. In addition, Alexandra Werntz and Saniya Soni also led a workshop on how mentors can support mentees with anxiety, which worked to demystify anxiety and encourage those in attendance to think critically about how mentoring programs can support our nation’s mental health. There was also opportunities to practice skills at the end!
