CUL Mentoring Program

Overview

Central University Libraries is committed to supporting the professional and personal development of its staff. Mentoring provides one opportunity for that support by offering the help and advice of a more experienced employee to a newer or less experienced employee. The program is available to all CUL employees.

Our Programs

  • Mentoring for Professional Development: CUL offers current employees the opportunity to work with a mentor in order to enhance their professional growth and development. As much as possible, mentors and mentees will not be in the same department.
  • Mentoring for New Employees: In order to help new staff assimilate into a new environment, CUL will match new employees with a current staff member. Usually, new employees are assigned a mentor within their department to help them acclimate to their new job duties more easily.
