The Mentoring Program commences in August and concludes the following June at the Annual NACDA Convention.  With the hopes that veteran administrators who understand the hardships and rewards of balancing life and work in the industry, would be able to share knowledge and experiences with young professionals, to ultimately shape the future of college athletics and young administrators just starting out. Participants are encouraged to communicate at least once a month and to witness a campus visit by the mentee to the mentor AD’s institution during the academic year.
