Cross-Institutional Mentoring Project

The Cross-Institutional Mentoring Program pairs graduate students interested in WAC/WID work with established scholar-practitioners within WAC Studies at different universities. This program is especially meant to provide one-on-one mentorship to graduate students who do not have access to WAC mentors, WAC coursework, or WAC opportunities in their graduate programs.

Participants in this program define and develop their mentoring relationships by setting their own goals, expectations, and activities over two semesters (Fall and Spring). Some of these activities might include: video chatting regularly, sharing drafts of recent work, emailing regularly, collaborating on projects, or socializing at conferences. 

WAC-GO is currently in its pilot year of this program, supporting 3 mentor-mentee pairs for Fall 2017-Spring 2018. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentee in this program, keep an eye out for our call next August 2018.
