College of Fellows Mentorship Committee

This committee is responsible for planning and implementing new ideas to engage AGU Fellows to support development of next generation of Earth and space scientists through mentorship activities and connections.

Committee Members

Committee chair: Emily Fischer, Colorado State University

Pierre Gentine, Columbia University
Lars Hansen, University of Minnesota Twin Cities        
Sarah Horst, Johns Hopkins University
Andrew Western, University of Melbourne

The committee is currently working on two activities:

  • AGU Mentoring Network is an initiative of the College of Fellows that goes beyond traditional mentoring by creating groups, or small networks, that include senior scientist mentors and peer mentors, which meet virtually once per month over the course of a year. Each network is composed of two senior scientists and six early career scientists. The network helps broaden opportunities and limit the obstacles for early career scientists just starting out professionally in the Earth and space sciences.
  • Hosting The Macelwane Early Career and Student Breakfast, which will provide an opportunity to interact with AGU Fellows, past and present Macelwane Medalists, and other mentors during Fall Meeting.
