Roughly 80 mentors, both new and returning, attended the Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP) Mentor Kick-Off on August 15, 2019 to begin the 2019-2020 CMP cohort.
The CMP Mentor Kick-Off Mixer allowed mentors to network with each other, learn more about SCPD, the College of Business (COB), and listen to a Q&A panel consisting of three veteran mentors plus one student alum. Overall, the event helped prepare mentors for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Each mentor will be paired with a COB senior level student, to help prepare them for life after college. Mentoring relationships are personalized, and goals set often result in tangible achievements. In addition, soft skills are developed in areas such as self-awareness, professionalism and self-confidence.
SCPD looks forward to a successful year with another record number of Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP) participants; including 132 mentors.
