Committee on Mentoring and Orientation
The Committee is charged with fulfilling its standing Charge as stated in Article VI. Section 14 of the LAUC-LA Bylaws:
Administer the annual Peer Review mentoring program, taking into account the recent survey feedback of mentoring program participants.
Advertise the mentoring program, including during the Peer Review Documentation Workshop.
Follow up with matched mentors and mentees to see if they need any support or guidance and administer an assessment survey at the end of the program to gather programmatic feedback.
Develop and administer methods, programs, and events to welcome new librarians by helping them meet colleagues and orienting them to the policies, procedures, and general structure of the UCLA Library. These initiatives may include (but are not limited to) creating welcome email messages, hosting one-on-one meetings, staging events with library administration, and organizing general orientation events.
Explore the feasibility of piloting a general mentorship program and a cohort program for newly-hired librarians.
