Collaborative Faculty Mentoring Program
CETaL's director offers this program with the aim of contributing to the retention and promotion of a highly qualified, diverse faculty. This year-long program provides group and peer mentoring to tenure-track faculty: groups within the same college are paired with 1-2 mentors from that same college. Mentees are not paired with mentors from their home department. Mentoring groups attend monthly luncheons where they discuss issues and topics of interest.
*The Collaborative Faculty Mentoring Program is not intended to replace existing departmental mentoring efforts. Rather, it offers additional information and resources that build upon the work of mentoring relationships developed and nurtured within departments. The program is sponsored by CETaL.
The Center's director offers an annual IMPACT Seminar which accepts a small number of applicants ”both tenure-track and tenured”each year for work in an intensive, year-long program. The IMPACT Seminars are designed to increase the effectiveness of participating faculty by developing new ways of integrating teaching, research and service, and by developing leadership skills. They build communities of current and future faculty leaders from various ranks who are committed to continual reflection on the relationship between teaching, research, service and leadership. Participants develop individual career action plans to facilitate their professional advancement and assessment plans to record the effects of those action plans. They meet monthly with the director of CETaL for a year to discuss the effectiveness of their plans. This program is co-sponsored by CETaL and the Provost Office.
