National Mentoring Community: Supporting Diversity in Physics
National Mentoring Community


Benefits of Mentoring

As a mentor, you can shape the next generation of physicists by providing guidance, life experience, and knowledge. By joining the National Mentoring Community (NMC), you are making a positive difference in the life of a student from a historically marginalized or minoritized background by supporting them as they undergo their education and start their career.

New mentors may sign up to join the NMC from October 4-16, 2023.

Learn more about mentoring on the APS Mentoring website

Mentor Resources

The NMC also supports you as a mentor with resources to assist you in connecting with your mentee to ensure the mentorship is mutually fulfilling and successful. APS and the NMC can also assist you in advancing your own career.

If you are currently an NMC mentor, APS supports you through our mentor resources library on the APS Mentoring website. You may log in to access these resources.

Testimonials from Mentors

I love the themed reminder emails and the sense of being part of a larger community.

...I think that the program is very useful. Personally, it helped me to understand the issues the students are facing, and an opportunity to help minority students on a one-on-one basis.
