Call for Mentors and Mentees

ALCQ/ACQL will be implementing a mentorship program to begin in 2022-23. 

The Association hopes to pair established scholars with graduate students and emerging scholars.

This program seeks to enable scholarly exchange, support emerging scholars, and offer junior and senior scholars safe spaces for advice and self-reflexivity. 

The Association seeks mentors who are motivated to guide and support other scholars.

We are inviting mentors and mentees to express interest in the program.

Mentors should:

  • Hold a permanent position or be retired from a position at a recognized university
  • Have availability to advise, listen to, and communicate with a mentee on a schedule determined by the mentor and mentee
  • Have a willingness to share resources or information with a mentee

The mission of the ALCQ/ACQL mentorship program includes supporting community members from marginalized and underrepresented groups. We invite scholars who are willing to share their experiences of navigating academia from the margins to participate.

The ALCQ/ACQL conference in May 2022 will host a panel on mentorship that will serve as the kick-off event for the mentorship program.

Please email Marie Carrière at if you are interested in serving as a mentor or participating as a mentee for the 2022-23 academic year, or if you would like to learn more about the program.
