Academic mentor event

It is University policy to ‘facilitate personal and professional development enabling individuals and groups to achieve their full potential’. Mentoring is a dynamic way to facilitating such development and is a means of providing structured support to a member of staff in the early stages of a new appointment. It is particularly relevant for members of staff in academic-related and contract research posts. The University of Cambridge supports mentoring as a dynamic way of facilitating professional and personal development. 

All staff newly appointed to the Department of Chemistry will be assigned an 'induction mentor'. 'Peer mentoring' and 'developmental mentoring' is supported and staff can discuss this with their line manager.
