Mentoring Forum 2019: Intentional Mentoring

Co-sponsored by


and the Office of Faculty Development, Medical School     


8:30 - 10:30 a.m., November 8, 2019

Ford Auditorium, 2nd Floor, University Hospital


The 2019 Mentoring Forum will feature a presentation on Intentional Mentoring: Collective Responsibility and Sustainability by Becky Wai-Ling Packard, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Education at Mount Holyoke College. Dr. Packard is an expert in the area of strategic mentoring and the persistence of students in higher education, to include first-generation college students, community-college transfer students, nontraditional students, people of color, and women in technical fields. Her research has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and Google. In 2005, she was recognized by the White House with the Presidential early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the nation’s highest honor for early career scientists and engineers.


In this talk, Dr. Packard offers a perspective on intentional mentoring, with a focus on what infrastructure may be needed to support our mentoring work when undertaken as a collective responsibility. While mentoring can be offered within formalized programs, this approach can also restrict access. When mentoring is embedded in our daily work, across the university system, we have the potential for greater impact. When mentoring work is distributed and coordinated, it is also more sustainable. Given the power of mentoring, the intentionality of the mentoring infrastructure signals the investment we are making in our ourselves and our future.


Check-in and a light breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m., with Dr. Packard's presentation starting at 9:00 a.m., and the 2019 Mentor Awards ceremony, presented by Vicki Ellingrod, PharmD, FCCP, Associate Director, MICHR, and Education & Mentoring Program Faculty Lead; Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education, College of Pharmacy; and Professor, Medical School, immediately following.
