Register here:

Junior faculty, graduate students, post-docs, research staff interested in improving their mentorship and collaborative networks at Creighton and with colleagues outside of Creighton are invited to attend program.

• Participants will identify the strengths and weaknesses of their current mentorship networks
• Participants will identify the type of connections that the participant seeks in order to improve their research career or broaden their collaborative opportunities. They will then develop action items to help them foster these connections
• For the Organizers: We will obtain ideas from the participants on how we can help foster diverse research mentorship development opportunities at Creighton. We will also obtain ideas on what participants may need from a “How to be a Good Mentor” workshop.

Pre-Assignment: Participants will draw out their own research mentorship network tree they have developed in their career. Participants will also list three words that describe faculty research mentorship environment at Creighton to be used in a word cloud to start the discussion during the workshop

• Organizers will discuss how to evaluate the types of connections one has in their mentorship network, and to identify what types of connections they may want to cultivate.
• Participants will start a plan for establishing more professional connections. We will have a template of potential ideas for them to start with (e.g. becoming an officer in a professional society).
• If time allows, we will also discuss characteristics of a good mentor

Facilitators: Carol Fassbinder-Orth, PhD, Katherine Liu, PhD, and Matt Reznicek, PhD in collaboration with other Creighton faculty colleagues
