1. Department Resources Group - Mentors Program Application

100% of survey complete.


The DRG Mentors Program provides one-on-one support, feedback, advice, and coaching to sociologists to help them increase their effectiveness as actors in a particular institutional role, such as department chair, division coordinator, or graduate studies director.

The purpose of DRG Mentors program is not to help individuals with their own publication or teaching. The DRG Mentors program is a volunteer effort – mentors do not receive monetary payment for their services.

Meetings with DRG mentors generally take place through phone conversations, email, and web-based video conferencing (such as Skype).

The length of mentor relationships is negotiated on a case-by-case basis, but may typically extend over 6 to 12 months.

To apply for a DRG Mentor, please fill out this questionnaire, and also send a copy of your current CV to Margaret Weigers Vitullo, Director of Academic and Professional Affairs at vitullo@asanet.org. Please allow up to 3 weeks to process your questionnaire and provide a mentor.
