Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Subcommittee of the Membership Committee.

Mission and Goals

The MARAC Mentoring Program features team-based mentoring: one-to-two mentors assigned to small cohorts of mentees. These cohorts can be aligned by a subject area, technical area, education or professional status, or simply on general archives professional development. Groups of mentees can self-identify as a cohort. The assigned mentor will have experience and interests relevant to the focus of the group. The mentoring cycle beings on July 1, with mentors and cohorts working together over the course of a year.

For more information, please see the Mentoring Program Guidelines


Applications may be submitted through this form. Applications will be accepted through June 16, 2023. Applicants will receive placement information in Summer 2023. Remember that this is group mentoring, so if you wish to bring together a cohort, you can indicate that by selecting 'Other' in Question 2.
