Faculty Development invites you to join the Mentoring for Success program. This 60-minute workshop is for junior faculty who are interested in joining the Mentoring for Success program and getting connected with a mentor. You'll come away with practical strategies for establishing and sustaining meaningful mentoring relationships with faculty mentors. Participation in the mentee workshop will help junior faculty to:

  • understand the benefits and importance of seeking mentoring relationships with mid career and senior colleagues
  • build social capital by participating in mentoring relationships
  • gain tips for becoming a successful mentee

This workshop is also geared toward tenured faculty thinking about promotion to full professor. Take this workshop to find a mentor who will help you prepare to apply for promotion to full professor.

Testimonials from faculty mentees:

"I had a great experience with my mentor! We were able to work out a specific plan to help me reach my research goals, and our meetings helped keep me on track. It was also so helpful to have a more senior colleague (but someone outside of my department) to go to with career questions (teaching, research, service, generally navigating university life)."

"Together with my mentor, I set goals for teaching and scholarly productivity, worked through obstacles, and celebrated successes; the Peer Mentoring program created a wonderfully supportive environment to flourish as a pre-tenure faculty member."
