Program Design and Structure

Inaugurated in 2013, the Arizona State University Commission on the Status of Women Staff Mentoring and Development Program pairs experienced and excelling staff members with staff who are interested in developing their career and leadership skills. The program is structured to provide support, networking opportunities, and professional development training to help staff members develop their careers and to become effective contributors to the New American University. Innovative in its design, the CSW Staff Mentoring and Development Program is one of the only university-wide mentoring programs of its kind offered at universities nationwide.

The program runs in summer cohort cycles, typically beginning in June and concluding in December. Currently, summer cohorts are limited to 40-45 mentoring pairs, as such participation in the program is selective. The program is open to all staff members across the entire university, regardless of biological sex or gender identity. Interested individuals are required to apply.
