Launched in 2018, the annual FASS Inspiring Mentor Awards are conferred on Faculty and Administrative staff who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to mentoring their junior colleagues and whose mentorship has been especially impactful on the good conduct, performance and professional growth of their mentees.
“Mentorship is a crucial factor in retaining and nurturing quality faculty and administrative staff, and in building up a strong and cohesive institutional culture. The role that such inspiring mentors play in this, is greatly appreciated,” said Professor Robbie B.H. Goh, Dean, FASS, in his announcement of the winners.
“There were a number of worthy nominees. Evidence showed that the nominees did not simply do the things which might be considered ‘in the course of duty’ but went above and beyond that, and really sacrificed their own time and energy for the sake of their mentees,” added Professor Goh. “I hope that we will all try to do our part as mentors, and build up an institutional culture that we can all be proud of.”
Dear FASS students, if you are planning to graduate in 2015, this is for you!
FASS Mentorship Programme 2014/15 (FASSMP)
In this programme, you will be matched with a FASS Alumni Mentor who can lend a Helping Hand in your Transition fromUniversity to Working Life. Each student will be matched with a mentor who can provide you with career and personal development guidance over the period of 1 year (August 2014 till July 2015 – during which at least four meetings are encouraged). It is up to mentors and their mentees to decide how best to engage each other in the exchange of ideas, and sharing of experiences and knowledge; whether over a meal, involvement in seminars and event management, or office visits to understand the working environment etc. In 2013/14, 86 FASS students were enrolled in the programme.
