Faculty Mentoring


Our 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.  This program is open to all faculty, including both non-tenure-track and tenure-track faculty, full-time and part-time.

Benefits for the Mentor:

Mentoring relationships have many advantages, not the least of which is a rejuvenated sense of professional purpose. Mentor benefits include:

  • A genuine sense of "giving back" by contributing to the development of a colleague;
  • A deepened sense of adding to the overall climate of change at the university;
  • 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:
  • Enhanced teaching and research skills;
  • Receive constructive and critical feedback;
  • Insights on navigating the institutional terrain;
  • Networking with key senior faculty;
  • Advice on balancing the demands of teaching, research, service.
Sign up to be a mentor or mentee today and participate in our supportive programming throughout the year.
