Become a Leader:

Mentor-Connect helps faculty learn new management skills and develop leadership skills through project development, proposal submission, and implementation of a funded project. Mentor-Connect offers tools and resources that support and increase diversity in the NSF ATE Program nationally. Mentor-Connect brings colleges who have not yet benefited from ATE Program funding into the ATE community and is building ATE Program leadership for tomorrow.

Through project development, proposal submission & implementation of a funded project, faculty will learn new management skills as well as develop leadership skills. Mentor-Connect seeks to offer tools and resources that will in return help to make Mentor-Connect a support for the National Science Foundation's ATE program need for underrepresented and underserved populations throughout the country. Currently 2/3 of the community colleges in the United States have not benefitted from ATE program funding. We are building ATE program leadership of tomorrow

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

John F. Kennedy
