The 2018 APS Bridge Program & National Mentoring Community (NMC) Conference will focus on strengthening mentor relationships, building firm foundations to create a successful Bridge student experience, and providing knowledge through discussions. Registration will open Summer 2018. For more information please visit the APS Bridge Program and NMC Conference page.
Become an NMC Mentor today! The NMC facilitates and supports mentoring relationships between African American, Hispanic American, and Native American undergraduate physics students and local physics mentors. You don’t have to be mentoring anyone at the moment to register. If you’re already mentoring a qualifying undergrad, invite them to join the program too. Membership in the NMC is free for both mentors and mentees. You can register at the NMC page.
The NMC provides monthly talking points to facilitate a deeper mentor-mentee relationship, professional development opportunities, and access to an emergency fund (NMC Beam Fund) for students with unexpected financial challenges.
Are you an industry physicist? Stay tuned. We will soon be launching the NMC Constellation Mentoring initiative for non-faculty physicists interested in being part of an undergraduate’s journey to becoming a physicist.
