Mentoring Program for New Faculty Members

There are two opportunities to submit your mentoring proposal:

December 2, 2019 and March 2, 2020

The Executive Vice President and Provost and the deans of each college provide funds to support a mentoring program for newly appointed assistant professors, assistant clinical professors, and assistant professors of practice.

  • Faculty members may each receive up to $1,500 designated for a project that engages at least one mentor, over time, to advance their academic career. 
  • The project should represent a career development opportunity that may not otherwise be possible without this funding. 
  • The intent is for the mentoring project to be one aspect of a comprehensive mentoring program that is sustained across the pre-tenure years. 
  • The mentoring project is designed by the new faculty member during the first year in residence and reviewed and approved by the department head prior to submission to the Office of the Provost.
