Mentoring and Grants

SERA Early Career Faculty Mentoring Initiative

SERA has initiated a trial Mentoring Program for Early Career Faculty. This program links early career faculty with peer or senior faculty mentors to provide a regionally driven network to support early career faculty with promotion and tenure, research/publications, and grant development. Please join us on Facebook, SERA Mentor, or LinkedIn, SERA Mentor. Once you join the group, post an introduction that contains the following: Institution Affiliation, Title, and mentor/mentee designation, Research Area(s). For questions, please contact Michelle Peters.
