New Faculty mentoring program: the Process
Although the Faculty Mentoring Program is purely voluntary, participation in the program is strongly encouraged. Each year, new or junior faculty who wish to be assigned mentors submit a Mentee Profile Form to Faculty Development. Senior faculty, who wish to serve as mentors, submit a Mentor Profile Form. The Mentoring Committee pairs mentors and mentees based on the profiles. A new faculty member is partnered with a more seasoned faculty member. Mentoring pairs generally belong to different departments but requests for mentoring partners from the same department are honored. A mentee may also have an informal mentor from the same department and an assigned or formal mentor from another department.
