New Faculty Mentoring Program

It is the department’s policy to provide effective mentoring for their new faculty. It is critical for the department to provide support for new faculty in providing guidance for setting up their research programs and obtaining outside funding for that program. It is the departments’ policy to assign a research mentor with in the first month that new faculty arrives. Other mentoring services such as social facilitative support will be provided by the chair or designee.

The research mentor will be a recognized expert in the faculty members’ research field. If the faculty member is assigned a mentor through a special grant program or University program, the research mentor will be the same individual.
The Chair will provide incentives indicating that mentoring is a priority. These include departmental recognition, and providing support for the mentors and mentees to meet over lunch.
The University’s ADVANCE Office will help provide formal mentor and mentee training.
