Creating and Maintaining a Robust Faculty Mentoring Program

Creating and Maintaining a Robust Faculty Mentoring Program

Universities and colleges spend large sums of money to find, recruit, and hire new faculty. Without sufficient guidance, many of those new faculty members will fall short of expectations somewhere along the path to tenure. One way to ensure new faculty can balance their responsibilities and fulfill their academic roles is through faculty mentoring programs.

An effective faculty mentoring program is grounded in nurturing new faculty without draining too much time and energy from mentors. The goal is for both the mentor and mentee to benefit from the relationship. Cultivating such a dynamic, however, is easier said than done.

Register today for the Magna online seminar, Creating and Maintaining a Robust Mentoring Program, presented by Kenneth Alford, PhD, and Tyler Griffin, PhD. By approaching faculty mentoring from both the mentor and mentee perspectives, this presentation provides balanced insights into methods for creating and maintaining worthwhile mentorship programs.
