Faculty Mentoring

Mentoring.pngOur Faculty Mentoring Program is designed to provide supportive relationships and experienced guidance for faculty around all aspects of academic life and help acclimate faculty as they adjust to a new environment or role.  Our well-respected, experienced mentors provide important advice and support on issues that are central to your success, including: teaching, networking, time management, research, grant writing, publishing, work/life balance, and navigating departmental cultures.  Our Faculty Mentoring Program is open to all faculty, including both non-tenure track and tenure-track faculty, full-time and part-time.

  • Developing a network of colleagues;
  • A reinvigorated and renewed perspective on your own teaching and scholarship.
Benefits for the Mentee:
Having a guide/coach can make the journey easier and more enjoyable.  Benefits for new faculty members include:
