MAPP: Mentors and Partners Program

Are you interested in having a teaching mentor this semester? Or maybe there’s a project you’d like to work on with a faculty colleague. If so, please come to our first Roundtable of the semester at noon on Wednesday, 8/23, to learn about the Mentors and Partners Program. At TC3, we are dedicated to improving teaching and learning, continuously reflecting on and sharing our practice with students. Funds are dedicated to this program for that purpose, providing a small stipend for participants. Applications for fall participation are due on Sept. 8. So please come on Wednesday (and bring your lunch if you like) to learn more.
