New Faculty Mentoring Info, Request Form and Workshop Dates

New Faculty Mentoring Initiative

In this program, junior faculty members are matched with senior colleagues who are outside the junior faculty members' home units. This program is supplemental to mentoring within a discipline or program and is not a replacement for that mentoring. In particular, the program assists untenured faculty members to become socialized to the college and university and to become aware of opportunities and resources. It integrates untenured faculty into the existing college structure through socialization to its norms and expectations. Finally, through the expanded interconnections of college faculty, the intellectual community is enhanced. Participation is voluntary, but strongly encouraged.

Faculty who are interested in requesting a mentor may complete and submit the online New Faculty Mentor Request Form through September 7th.

Mentor and Mentee Workshops

Each year ADVANCE conducts mentor and mentee workshops to which new faculty mentees and their mentors are invited. Participants are provided with an overview of expectations, responsibilities and best practices, to help the mentoring partnerships succeed. Workshops are offered several times, to ensure all can attend. Each mentor and each mentee need attend only one session, which are geared toward the two different roles. Sessions for 2015-2016 mentors and mentees will be posted shortly.
