New BU Profiles Mentoring Feature

in Announcements, Featured
April 13th, 2016

Do you consider yourself to be a Mentor, or are you looking for a Mentor in a particular area?

BU Profiles has a NEW Mentoring Section which:

  • Is highly visible and showcases faculty mentoring expertise.
  • Makes it easy for students, trainees and faculty to find mentors across BUMC.

BU Profile holders can edit their profile and add a dedicated mentoring narrative about their approach and outlook.  Are you willing to act as a mentor but haven’t provided your mentoring narrative?  Please do the following:

  • Read the Mentoring FAQs section, which contains tips on what to include.  You’ll find excellent examples of faculty who have already added mentoring here and here.
  • Make your Mentoring section public to ensure it will be visible.

Anyone can use the new “Find Mentors” search option to look for mentors by role, department/section or keyword.

Learn about the new mentoring features by looking at the “what’s new” section, or by reading the Mentoring FAQs.  Please give us your feedback on this new feature, or on anything else in BU Profiles.  You can use that form if you have questions or issues of any kind.
