Introducing the Student Conference Mentorship Initiative

0

CAPAL18 will be the inaugural year for a new mentorship initiative created through a collaboration between the National Student Committee and the Research and Scholarship Committee. Any student or recent grad who is presenting at the conference is eligible to be matched with a mentor who will help them prepare their presentation throughout the month of May.

The goals are of the mentorships are:

  • to encourage and support the participation and contribution of students and emerging professionals in the annual CAPAL conference
  • to create an opportunity for knowledge exchange
  • to foster connections between student and non-student members of CAPAL

Two mentorship pairings have been requested and organized for CAPAL18, and feedback from these participants will be taken into consideration when organizing the mentorships for next year. If you’d like more information about this initiative or to contribute to the conversation about student involvement in the organization, please contact the National Student Committee Liaison at capal.students@gmail.com.
