Resources for New Faculty
We firmly believe that new faculty should be in control of their own paths. They benefit from resources--print, on-line, and face-to-face--that help them navigate the path to a successful career as an academic. We have endeavored to put together those resources for new faculty on this web site, and through our own faculty mentoring program.
Resources for Mentors Too
Mentors provide the best support when they act as mirrors and sounding boards for their proteges. This means providing accountability through regular check-ins, but also as a reality check when plans are unrealistic, or not going as planned. They also serve as conduit to the rest of the campus, making appropriate referrals, or in rare cases, alerting campus leaders (e.g. the Academic Affairs office) when a faculty member needs help.
