The Tri-Mentoring Program (TMP), in collaboration with the Faculty Working Group of the Presidential Implementation Committee to Confront Anti-Black Racism (PICCABR) is launching a career mentorship program for Black students in graduate programs at Toronto Metropolitan  University. If you are interested in mentoring a Black graduate student pursuing a career in academia, this program may be right for you! 

What might this look like?

The program will launch in January 2024  as a pilot in which Black graduate students are matched with a faculty member to engage in activities such as knowledge development and dissemination, conference presentations, and education and training opportunities. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact with other mentors and mentees outside of their 1-to-1 matches. Knowledge gained from the pilot will assist with further development of the program.

Who can be involved as a mentor?

Any Black faculty member who wants to support the professional development of a Black graduate student pursuing a career in academia. Mentors are expected to connect with their mentees for approximately 2 hours per month.
