THE ACADEMIC Professionals Mentoring Program (APMP) Committee requests that all interested parties submit applications for the Fall 2011 Academic Professionals Mentoring Program.

UNDER THE direction of the Office for Access and Equity (OAE), a group of volunteers from APAC and the Chancellor's Status Committees are announcing the Fall 2011 APMP, a mentoring program for academic professionals and staff at UIC.

THE PROGRAM allows Academic Professionals as well as other staff the opportunity for professional development, advancement, and leadership and skills development in their careers. The program will run from the beginning of September 2011 through May 31, 2012. A kick-off event for all participants will be held in mid-September, at a date yet to be determined.

THE APMP committee is accepting applications for mentors and protégés through Friday, July 15. If you are interested in becoming a mentor and/or a protégé for the first time or participating in program again, visit the APMP website and complete an application. The website is http://www.uic.edu/depts/oae/APMP/forms/AcademicProfessionalMentoringProgram_General_App.pdf.

“IT WAS nice to connect with other APs whom I wouldn’t normally interact with in my job,” said Dale E. Rush, resource and policy analyst for the Office of Budgeting and Program Analysis and a participant in the program. “The guidance and support I received from this program has really helped me to grow as an Academic Professional.”

IF YOU have questions, contact the committee at apmp_committee@uic.edu.
