The goal of UND's Human Resources Learning & Development program is to make UND a living and learning community, an organization that puts its people first and one where staff are given opportunities to improve themselves, opportunities to learn, connect, and grow.
Mentoring is an effective way of helping UND Staff evolve in their careers and grow personally and professionally. Here are some past participants testimonials.
"My primary objective going into the mentoring program was to help myself and my mentee expand our professional horizons. Having established a professional relationship with my mentee, outside of my usual work group, pushed me to go beyond my comfort level. My mentee and I are still in touch and continue to help each other professionally. Indeed this program was outstanding and I would definitely recommend it to others!" Mentor
"I initially applied to the mentoring program because I wanted to gain confidence and improve on what I perceived as my weaknesses. I took the StrengthsFinder and found out what my strengths actually are. Through the process of having them clearly explained to me, I felt so enlightened. Then I was challenged by my mentor to step outside of my comfort zone, and I did so. The result has been an increase in confidence both personally and professionally." Mentee
