Career Advancement Mentorship Program (CAMP)

Career Advancement Mentorship Program (CAMP)
The UC Merced Career Advancement Mentorship Program (CAMP) is a volunteer career development program that matches experienced UC Merced staff (mentors) with staff members (mentees) seeking mentoring and professional development. This annual program provides the opportunity for mentors to share their knowledge and experience with mentees to better equip mentees to become future leaders and/or to excel in their chosen field. The mentorship program matches mentors and mentees based on their interests and experiences and provides assistance with goal setting.
