Professor Jean Rhodes to serve as Rudd Family Visiting Professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst

Through a generous gift of the Rudd Family Foundation, the Rudd Family Visiting Professorship was created in order to bring expertise to the UMass Amherst campus which would support the goals of the ongoing Rudd Adoption Research Program. We are pleased to announce that Professor Jean Rhodes, an internationally recognized expert on mentoring, has agreed to spend a week with our team in February 2020, especially focusing on one of our signature programs, the Adoption Mentoring Partnership. During the visit, Professor Rhodes will deliver public lectures, meet with mentoring program, review the AMP program’s goals, activities, and outcomes, and make recommendations about its direction for the short- and long-term.
