Peers one-on- one, small group meetings… amongst the other faculty in the small groups” “..it is a two way relationship wherein both the mentor and mentee need to be interested and committed” “worked for a number of reasons… mentor extremely organized… clear outline and deadlines, common interests, engagement…”

Given what you are trying to accomplish, how will your current network help you achieve your goal? What type of help is missing in your current network? How can your leverage your current network to enhance existing relationships and/or initiate new ones?
