At Kent State University we believe that mentoring is important for all faculty. We also understand that no one model is applicable to everyone. Below is a series of guidelines and resources for colleges, departments and schools, mentors, and mentees.
RESOURCES FOR COLLEGES
- Best practices - COMING SOON
RESOURCES FOR CHAIRS AND DEPARTMENTS
- Building a Departmental-Level Program: A Guide for Chairs - This guide has been written based on the 7 best practices suggested by COACHE (Collaborative on Careers in Higher Education). Departmental programs should address all 7 points.
RESOURCES FOR ALL FACULTY
- Personal Mentoring Map - This map, adopted from The National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity can be used to help any faculty member map out their own mentoring needs.
- National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity - Kent State has an institutional membership with the NCFDD. On this site you have access to free webinars and other resources as well as heavily discounted access to their highly successful boot camps. All Kent State faculty can create a free account at the NCFDD website.
RESOURCES FOR ASSOCIATE PROFESSORS
- Guide for Promotion to Full Professor - prepared by Kathy Kerns, Professor, Department of Psychological Sciences
- We run four sessions each year focused on Associate Professors. More information is forthcoming.
- Mid-Career Coaching Program - Kent State has worked with 53 mid-career faculty in this highly successful coaching program. Applications will be accepted each year in the beginning of Fall semester.
