MSR Mentoring Program
MSR initiated a Mentoring Program in the Fall of 2016 with the goal to provide support to PhD students and early-in-career professors conducting research in MSR and related topics. Since that time seven individuals have been “matched” with a mentor. Some mentors and mentees conduct a dialogue over several months or longer; some have only one or two conversations, depending on the need. Following is a comment from one such individual: “My mentor and I have had one skype call and she has been sending me some MSR notices via email. She gave me a lot of background on MSR and what kinds of things people are working on and she was just a great sounding board for me to kind of see if any of my ideas were viable.”
The Mentoring Program is fortunate to have responses from senior members willing to act as mentors for research guidance in MSR-related topics. Whether you are a student or a professional, we are available to help in the area of scholarly research.
