DCU Staff Mentoring Scheme - FAQ
How will mentees be matched with mentors?
Matches will be made by Learning and Development using the information on the expression of interest forms.
Generally (but not exclusively), academic staff will be matched with a more senior academic from a different school but within the same Faculty. This should facilitate development and career related conversations rather than those focussed on day to day/supervisor type conversations.
In the case of professional staff, a match will be made with a senior administrative staff member from a different unit. The mentor should avoid adopting the role of supervisor / manager.
For Research Staff, the mentor will generally be a senior research or academic staff member.
If staff members have a preference for a specific member of staff please provide this information to Learning and Development and every effort will be made to agree the match.
