CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program

The CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program is in its sixth cohort!

What is the CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program?
The Center for Leadership, Equity, and Research (CLEAR) Leadership Mentoring Program provides participants with an opportunity to participate in a formal and structured mentoring program. Mentors and protégés work together to develop goals and objectives that guide each towards a more meaningful leadership experience whereby participants combine professional learning and mentoring to succeed as a leader. The CLEAR Leadership Mentoring Program develops a “mentoring culture” whereby mentors and protégés, together with other like-minded leaders, seize upon the opportunity to implement and participate in “Praxis” or “Intentional Activism,” meant to change the manner in which “things have always been done.”
