The Faculty Mentoring Program is open to all full-time Academic and Administrative faculty as defined by the most recent CBA. Faculty in all the university colleges and organizations (Arts and Science, Business and Public Affairs, Education, Health Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts, and Non-Classroom Faculty) are eligible to participate as mentees and to serve as mentors. A Call for Mentees and Mentors will be issued early in the fall semester of the academic year. Prospective Mentees can examine mentor profiles posted on D2L, choose a mentor, and convey their choice to the FMP Coordinator. The program includes a one-time orientation session in the fall term and regular monthly meetings of mentoring pairs throughout the rest of the academic year.
The mission of the Faculty Mentoring Program (FMP) is to enhance lifelong professional development in teaching, scholarship, and service. The mentoring relationships will support collegiality, effective communication, self-evaluation, and cultural competence, all of which enhance a stimulating and supportive university environment.
Look for the "call" for mentors and mentees in early fall semester. Look at mentor profiles (posted on D2L), choose a mentor and convey choice to FMP Coordinator.
Attend a one-time orientation in mid fall semester. Establish a regular meeting schedule for fall AND spring semesters.
