The Mid-Career Faculty Mentoring Program, which began in fall 2016, is a two-year, cohort-based program for mid-career faculty coordinated by the vice provost for faculty and staff. The program is designed to support mid-career faculty looking for a network to help navigate this stage in their careers, and to successfully move to the next significant project that will launch them into the next phase of their work-life at the university.
The program is composed of mentors and mentees, each mentee being paired with a senior faculty mentor. Mentors and mentees will engage in one-on-one discussions around the mentee’s interests as well as the program’s curricular themes.
In addition, participating mid-career faculty will have opportunities to meet together as a cohort and attend other mid-career faculty events such as the Mid-career Faculty Workshop Series. In the second year of the program, mentees will focus on a specific project they want to initiate or bring to completion.
Mentees and mentors for the second cohort of the program have been selected for the 2018-2020 academic years.
