Research & Education Committee (REC)

AESA Mentoring Program

Under the leadership of Dr. Shant Kenderian, AESA has initiated a mentorship program for college level students. The goal of this program is to help students to enhance their careers and to learn from the experiences of accomplished professionals. In this program we plan to introduce students to mentors based on interest, experience and academic degree level. The details of the mentoring program define who can be a mentee or a mentor and what is expected of the participants. As you can see in the downloadable "Mentoring Program" document below, the mentors are provided with considerable flexibility in defining their level of involvement.
