RBHS Faculty AEM Program (Advance, Engage, and Mentor)
The AEM longitudinal program is designed to build a community of practice, engage faculty, foster leadership skills, provide mentoring, and expand networking opportunities for faculty at RBHS. It also provides an affinity space for courageous dialogue. The overall aim of the program is to nurture diverse future leaders at RBHS and foster a sense of belonging and professional growth for the cohort. In Fall 2020, the pilot program was launched. Our program partners for the AEM program are the Rutgers Center for Organizational Leadership and the Rutgers Connection Network.
