Career Advancement and Mentorship Program

Program Information Our Mentors Our Mentees CAM Committee Application Form

The Career Advancement and Mentorship (CAM) Program sponsored by the Northeastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) is a mentoring program held in concert with the NAREA Annual Meeting. The CAM program is a unique opportunity for pre-tenured faculty and early career scholars to develop and enhance professional networks, receive one-to-one mentoring from an experienced NAREA member within the environmental and agricultural economics community, and to attend a dinner and panel session on issues of concern to early career scholars. 

The CAM program consists of two parts:
1) Induction and dinner to be held during the NAREA Annual Meeting in even years. There is no fee for this program, but space is limited.
2) A biennial year-long one-on-one mentoring program held on odd years.  Even years will serve as cohort reunions and opportunities to review on year-long accomplishments and debrief on program goals.

NAREA is currently seeking applications for mentees, and expressed interest by possible mentors, for the 2017-2018 Career Advancement and Mentorship (CAM) Program.  We expect that up to 10 mentors and mentees will participate in the one-to-one 2017-2018 mentoring cohort.  This matching will be made based on mentor and mentee preferences and interests that will be communicated through a short mentee application. Mentees interested in this year long program, which will include ongoing mentoring opportunities, need to apply by April 15, 2017. We hope to include pre-tenure faculty at universities and researchers involved in outreach at both governmental and non-governmental organizations in this program.  Although our top priority is to create the best possible matches between our mentors and mentees, preference may be given to mentee applicants in permanent positions (including visiting faculty).  Post-doctoral scholars, and researchers in comparable positions, will be considered on a space available basis.

Colleagues interested in serving as a mentor should contact Jill Caviglia-Harris, or any of our other committee members..  We will ask for a short biography (including name and contact information) if this is not already easily accessible on the web. For more information about the program please contact Jill Caviglia-Harris,
