CFPD Mentor Program Provides Additional Support
Informal faculty mentoring relationships that are formed within departments can contribute significantly to new faculty member success, but it is unlikely that each new faculty member will find a mentor that suits his or her needs. The relationships that are formed often last for a short time due to the time demands on each person. Rather than leaving this important support to chance, higher education institutions need to create new faculty mentoring programs that provide the structure to encourage sustained mentoring, says Maryse Richards, director of the Center for Faculty Professional Development (CFPD) and psychology professor at Loyola University Chicago.
