Chelsea Mohr ’17 and Prof Janel Benson Host Workshop on Effective Mentoring

By Chris Henke on March 9, 2017

Chelsea Mohr, a senior sociology major, and Professor Janel Benson recently co-facilitated a brownbag on effective mentoring at the Max Shacknai COVE. Several campus volunteer organizations attended the workshop, which asked participants to explore their volunteer group’s assumptions about the role of a mentor and how they could improve their outreach and effectiveness. The session was informed by Upstate Institute supported research projects on effective mentoring conducted last year in Professor Benson’s Community-Based Participatory Research Course and Chelsea Mohr’s student-initiated summer research.
