WPA-GO and the CWPA Mentoring Project are excited to again sponsor a "Breakfast Buddy" Mentoring Event at this year's CWPA summer conference in Boise, Idaho! Graduate students, new faculty or staff, or first-time conference attendees who sign-up for this event will be matched with a mentor “breakfast buddy” from another institution.
Then paired buddies will meet and chat together during one of the WPA communal breakfasts on Friday, July 18, 2015—our way of encouraging light-hearted, cross-institutional mentoring.
