The primary purpose of the ASLE Mentoring Program is to offer graduate students and early career scholars career guidance and other forms of professional support. Some examples include guidance in academic scholarship or creative writing, service as outside readers on dissertation committees, help navigating the job market, advice for publishing, and support for faculty members in early career tenure-track and precarious positions.
Over the years, the mentoring program has evolved to support the ASLE community in various ways:
