Rutgers Connection Network (RCN) Mentoring Program

RCN banner

Sponsored by the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, the SciWomen Office, and the New Brunswick Provost Office of Faculty Development and Excellence, the Rutgers Connection Network Mentoring Program is designed to increase the engagement and scholarly productivity of Rutgers faculty by acting as a catalyst for cross-disciplinary connections throughout the university.  We provide the infrastructure, training and facilitation that enable faculty to participate in effective and collaborative mentoring partnerships with other faculty beyond the departmental level.

In AY 15-16 this program was piloted through funding from the New Brunswick Strategic Plan.  As a result of positive feedback, the AY 16-17 program is being offered to all faculty universitywide.  If you are a faculty member interested in participating as a mentee, mentor, or co-mentor, please see the Apply Now tab for more information and to apply by June 30, 2016.
