2021-2022 BCC Peer Mentorship Program
The BCC Membership Committee is excited to invite you to participate in the BCC Peer Mentorship Program! The goals for this new program are twofold: to orient people to the BCC, encouraging them to build relationships and get involved; and to facilitate professional mentorship around the curation of born-digital materials.
The Peer Mentorship Program will formally run from July 2021 – June 2022, with mid-year and end-of-year cohort check-ins where we will receive feedback from all participants. The program is open to all BCC member institutions.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form by June 25, 2021. We will use the information to match participants.
If you have any questions, please email the BCC Membership Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
