SHPE SDSU is starting a great new program called MentorSHPE. The SHPE SDSU MentorSHPE Program is designed to create a trusting relationship within our community. Mentoring is a proven approach to drive rich learning and development for both mentees and mentors. With the support of SHPE San Diego and Company Representative Partnerships we were able to launch this program. Each mentee is to be mentored in either Academics, Career Development, Professional or Personal Development. Let’s grow together!

SHPE SDSU is needing professionals who are willing to commit 2 hours per month to meetings and activities with their paired participants.

If you are a professional who is wanting to be a part of the program, please contact SHPE SDSU Vice President David Prieto, or use the following link for more information: http://shpesdsu.weebly.com/launchshpe.html
