What processes do you use to ensure that all new faculty, especially pre-tenure faculty, are offered a mentor if they want one?
The Law School's mentoring plan seeks to connect each junior faculty member with at least one tenured colleague who can provide guidance about teaching, scholarship, and service. Every tenure-track faculty member has been paired with a senior, tenured faculty colleague with a compatible set of pedagogical and intellectual interests.
Do you track how many faculty are mentored, and if so how?
Yes. Tracking is done as part of the annual workplan meeting and annual review process.
Do you evaluate the success of the program, and if so how?
At the end of the academic year, the Associate Dean and Dean will review the mentoring program and implement appropriate changes and improvements.
