Coordinated by the Membership Committee, the NEAIR Mentor Program matches institutional researchers with experienced professionals for informal, on-going advice and support. Although the majority of mentees meet their mentors at the annual conference, NEAIR provides mentoring from November through May 1 to any NEAIR member.

Want a Mentor?

If you have indicated that you would like a mentor when you completed your conference registration form, we will send you the Be A Mentee Form to complete in order to match you with a mentor.  Not attending the conference this year?  Please fill out the form and a member of the NEAIR team will be in touch during the annual fall matching process.
