In collaboration with the Provost and Office of Faculty Affairs, the UMass Worcester Mentoring Advisory Board was established in 2011. Members of the Advisory Board represent the and the spectrum of mentoring needs across the entire campus: the three Schools, the mission areas and various mentoring communities. The term for membership is one year with the opportunity for reappointment. Meetings are held quarterly.
The key responsibilities of this Advisory Board include:
- assist in identifying mentoring needs

- serving as a forum to share best practices in mentoring
- reviewing and evaluating current mentoring activities.
