Faculty Mentors

At the time of initial hire, probationary faculty members (i.e., non-tenured tenure-track faculty) are each assigned a faculty mentor. Mentors work to foster development of faculty member’s teaching, research, and service. Mentors advise probationary faculty on the content and format of the files required for tenure and promotion. Faculty mentors are also assigned to all new NTTs and part-time instructors to advice on effective and reflective teaching.
