"Breakfast Buddy" Mentoring Event at 2014 CWPA Conference in Normal, Illinois

WPA-GO and the CWPA Mentoring Project are excited to sponsor a "Breakfast Buddy" Mentoring Event at CWPA conference next month! Graduate students, new faculty, or first-time conference attendees who sign-up for this event will be matched with a faculty mentor “buddy” from another institution. Then, to encourage light-hearted, cross-institutional mentoring, paired buddies will meet and chat together during the conference breakfast on Friday, July 18th.
