About the Mentoring and Advising Summit

The vision for the virtual summit is to explore how we can continue to build a strong culture of inclusion and belonging in our mentoring and advising work. As we strive to enhance and enrich Pitt’s educational offerings, it is increasingly important to embrace different ideas, critical perspectives, challenges, and lived experiences.

During the event, participants will be engaged with and learn about specific tools, techniques, theories, and concepts to support students as they chart goals, develop enduring networks of colleagues and mentors, and sustain their pursuit of success after graduation.
