Intercultural mentors/proteges sought

April 27, 2009

University Park, Pa. -- The Commission on Racial/Ethnic Diversity (CORED), in conjunction with Penn State's Office of Human Resource's Multicultural Staff Support Center, is seeking participants for its University-wide mentoring program. The Intercultural Staff Mentoring Program is designed to enhance the professional and personal development of racial and ethnically underrepresented staff (exempt and nonexempt) and technical-service employees by formally connecting them with mentors who can provide advice and support on a variety of work-related issues including career planning, job skill enhancement, University involvement and community resources.

Full-time staff and technical-service employees can apply to be a mentor or protege at online. Applications should be submitted by Friday, June 26, to be considered for the 2009-2010 academic year. It is not always possible to establish a pair for each applicant. When an appropriate pair cannot be joined, applicants are strongly encouraged to try again. For information, e-mail Steve Hayes at
