Welcome from Head of School

Our Mentoring Program supports our career and professional objectives as individuals and as a School.

Professor Nancy Baxter

I am very pleased to announce that the Mentoring@MSPGH Program will commence in May 2022. At our School we work with public health leaders as well as great people leaders who demonstrate our core values, including; collaboration and teamwork, compassion, respect, integrity, and accountability.

The program is designed to support both academic and professional staff, enabling a sharing of our skills and expertise. While this program is an exciting initiative and an important way for staff to contribute as leaders of the School, it is only one way to support our overall expectation of mentoring at the School. We are all involved in supporting these values, through our interactions with our colleagues every day. We all informally and in many cases formally (through other programs), have mentoring interactions every day and I encourage that to continue.

I encourage you to consider registering as a mentee for the program and I also ask that mentors come on board. This is an important way for all of us to show our leadership and of course as always, never stop learning ourselves. Being a mentor is a great opportunity to share what you know, and support others to achieve tangible benefits in their career.

We are seeking applications from professional and academic staff at the MSPGH. Please read the participant guidelines (for mentees and mentors) below:
