USask launches Faculty Mentorship Program


The University of Saskatchewan has launched a new Faculty Mentorship Program to support its researchers. The program will be led by Western College of Veterinary Medicine Professor Dr Jaswant Singh, who was part of a USask faculty committee that examined mentorship programs at USask and other U15 universities. The campus-wide program aims to respond flexibly to the needs of USask researchers and support USask in recruiting world-class researchers. “In this work, you always need to have interconnections with other disciplines, and that’s a big need–to go across colleges,” said Singh. “That’s why we need something at the institutional level.”
