Mason Mentor Applications

The conference planning team is looking for students, faculty, and staff who are interested in serving as Mason Action Group Mentors.  We are looking for folks who are interested in engaging and mentoring conference students around their passion areas of interest.  Mentors will help guide a Mason Action Group as they begin developing their plans of action and setting goals of making a positive change in their selected focus area.  Although the Mason Action Groups will be determined when at the conference, we anticipate we will have groups that will focus on areas around (but not limited to):

  • Policing of Bodies
  • Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
  • Sexual Assault, Sexism, and Misogyny
  • Immigration
  • Discrimination and Racism
  • Mental Health
  • Civic Engagement, Voting, and Democracy

Conference participants will have an opportunity to join student networking groups called Mason Action Groups, focused around various issues of concern in our global society.  Action groups will be decided upon by student participants and students will have a chance to select the action group they want to be a part of.  These Mason Action Groups, will work together during the conference, to develop plans and set goals to work towards making a positive change in our communities.  Faculty and staff mentors will also be onsite to help with developing framework, researching, and organizing details. If you are interested in serving as a Mason Action Group Mentor, we ask that you be available for the duration of the conference to allow for engagement with the student participants. If you are interested in serving as a Mason Action Group Mentor, please click here to complete the application.
