The College of Business recognizes the important role that mentors can serve for junior faculty. Faculty members, especially junior faculty, are strongly encouraged to choose a mentor from the senior members of their unit. They may also choose multiple mentors.
Mentorship is tracked informally during general discussion in faculty meetings and with each faculty member during the annual review period.
Additionally, new faculty who just earned their doctorate are encouraged to continue their mentorship relationship with their dissertation chair, or other PhD committee members, from their PhD granting institution.
In addition to mentoring relationships, faculty are encouraged to take advantage of mentoring-related resources available at the University, including teaching workshops offered by the Delphi Center, professional development workshops offered by the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, and workshops and webinars offered by the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity.
