Mentoring

 

It is a healthy workplace practice to assign mentors to new employees as they transition into their positions at URI. Employees should feel comfortable asking what the policies and practices are in their area. There is currently a university mentoring policy for faculty, as well as individual college policies. This information is provided below.

URI Faculty Mentoring Policy

“All URI colleges shall implement a mentoring policy that provides for effective mentoring for their new faculty. This mentoring shall consist of career-advancing guidance, as well as social and psychological support for the new faculty member. College policies shall include the provision of one or more mentor(s) to each new faculty member, some form of mentor training, and regular “checking in” to ensure that the needs of junior faculty are being met.” December 2006
