- How does mentoring differ for pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty?
- Does your department, college or university effectively mentor pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty?
- How can you work towards providing faculty with meaningful mentoring relationships and experiences across the career span?
- How can institutions provide effective mentoring for under-represented faculty?
This 3-hour workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that post-tenure and mid-career faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community, and accountability. This event is offered by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity and is co-sponsored by Faculty Affairs and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity at Virginia Tech.
