Faculty Mentoring Program

The Faculty Mentoring Program is open to all full-time academic and administrative faculty, as defined by the most recent CBA. Any faculty member can participate as a mentee, but only tenured faculty members may serve as a mentor. Once mentors have completed the training program (usually offered at the end of each spring semester), their profiles are added to this website. Then, a call for new mentees is issued early in each fall semester, when prospective mentees are invited to review the mentor profiles and request a mentor. Once mentee-mentor pairs are matched, all are invited to attend a one-time orientation session during the fall term. Mentee-mentor pairs then meet regularly throughout the academic year, with periodic check-ins and support from the members of the Faculty Mentoring Committee.

Program Mission

The mission of the Faculty Mentoring Program 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.
