PSS Mentoring Committee

The Professional Staff Senate (PSS) Mentoring Program is set up to provide an opportunity for seasoned staff to share their knowledge, resources, expertise, experience, values and skills with other staff members across campus. Mentors will be a friendly resource to mentees, providing them with coaching, insight and encouragement.

The overall goals are to increase staff morale, create avenues to develop new relationships and build a stronger, more cohesive community at UMBC. The program will be open to a maximum of 20 mentors and 20 mentees annually.
