As we begin a new school year, we are pleased to announce several new resources and services available to the University community. The Mentoring Academy was launched in April to offer faculty the opportunity to participate in a program based on the National Research Mentoring Network curriculum. Trained faculty facilitators will lead the program, which will offer workshops on eight mentoring competencies over four sessions, resulting in a credential for participants. Read about the more new resources in this week's newsletter.
The School of Law is now accepting applications for Human Resources Law Online, a new Pitt Online graduate certificate program that tackles the legal issues that sometimes arise in the human resource industry. Classes begin in fall 2019 and will be taught over 40 weeks by Pitt Law faculty and employment law practitioners, with a focus on practical applications of the law within human resources. Learn more about this program on the Human Resources Law Certificate page and contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Earlier this term, Pitt celebrated the 50th anniversary of an event that would forever change the African-American student experience at the University of Pittsburgh. In our latest episode of TC60, we showcase “Say It Loud: The Black Action Society, The Computer Center Takeover, and Transformation at the University of Pittsburgh” event. The Teaching Center's Academic Digital Media team chronicled the event, which is the feature of this month's installment of TC60.
