A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Maureen O'Connor, Ph.D., J.D.

I recently had the opportunity to spend the afternoon in conversation with my esteemed colleague, Distinguished Professor Ricardo Muñoz. Dr. Muñoz and I have many things in common, but one is very dear to us: the topic of mentorship. In honor of National Mentoring Month in January, we shared our experiences as mentees and mentors and talked about the importance of mentorship in the fields of psychology and counseling. You can view our conversation here. For another perspective, I hope you'll take a moment to read below about Ph.D. student Saranya Sundaram and how mentorship has been integral throughout her life.
