    Fall Chapter Event!

    Building an
    Effective Mentoring Program
    Presenters: Cheryl Doll, Director of Organizational and Faculty Development at Lehigh Carbon Community College
    &


    Ed Rabinowitz, Assistant Professor of Communications at Lehigh Carbon Community College

    Ed Rabinowitz is a communications professional with more than 35 years of writing experience under his belt. He has served as Publications Manager and Eastern Public Relations Manager for Volkswagen of America, and Director of Marketing Communications for Continental Insurance, writing brochures, press releases, executive speeches, and material for various corporate publications.

    As a freelance journalist, Ed has written extensively in the healthcare, and personal finance and investing fields. Most recently, he published his second book, “One More Dance,” which chronicles a family’s courageous battle against brain cancer. He now serves as Assistant Professor, Communication, at Lehigh Carbon Community College, teaching interpersonal communication, oral presentation, intercultural communication, and communication theory courses. He is also faculty advisor to The Paw Print, LCCC’s student newspaper.

    He earned his B.A. in Communication from Herbert H. Lehman College, and his M.C.I.S. in Communication from Rutgers University.

    How is talent developed?

    In academia, the focus is two-fold:

    • Students
    • Faculty
    That's where mentoring plays a huge role. An effective faculty mentor program not only trains but helps retain valuable members of the teaching community. And that faculty is instrumental in retaining and developing talented students. 

    A newly developed faculty mentor program at Lehigh Carbon Community College has set its sights on the aforementioned goals.

    This program, offered in a case study format, will discuss:

    • How the program was assembled
    • What has been accomplished thus far
    • Its value to the LCCC community

    Dinner is included.

    Directions:  Lehigh Carbon Community College, 4525 Education Park Dr, Schnecksville, PA 18078 (Alumni Center, rooms 107 and 108)
