National Mentoring Community
The APS National Mentoring Community (NMC) is a program to increase the number of underrepresented ethnic/racial minority students who complete Bachelor’s degrees in physics. It does so by facilitating and supporting mentoring relationships between African American, Hispanic American, and Native American undergraduate physics students and local physics mentors.
The program provides support to mentors and mentees through email prompts that guide discussions and additional resources.
The 2016 National Mentoring Community Conference was held October 21-23 at the University of Houston.
