Mentoring Matters Video Series with Dr. Beth Brunk-Chavez and Cira Montoya

First published by Academic Technologies (AT) for The University of Texas at El Paso.

“Mentoring Matters” is produced Academic Technologies (AT) for The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and promotes the sharing of pathways to leadership. This web series provides testimonials from high-achieving leaders at UTEP (administration, faculty, staff and students) who serve as mentors, as well as from the mentees who have gained wisdom and value from them.

Leaders must have some level of intrinsic motivation, but they also must be given the opportunity to shoulder increasingly challenging roles, learn and gain insight from mentors, and then experiment with varying results. We believe that those anticipating a life of leadership in higher education and public service will benefit by hearing the stories of those who have come before them, and are willing to share their expertise and experiences.

“Mentoring Matters” is conceptualized and facilitated by Cira Montoya, Sr. Instructional Consultant for Academic Technologies (AT).
