Faculty Mentoring Program Workspace

    No headers

    The purpose of this survey is to aid in the development of a University –wide faculty mentoring program. Our goal is to assist those faculty who do not have access to a mentoring program through either their department or college, and to continue to provide assistance for those approaching either the mid-tenure review or approaching promotion and tenure. Our long term goal is to aid in the success and retention of both non-tenure track and tenure track faculty.

    This survey encompasses a series of questions related to what type of mentoring program would be most beneficial to you (e.g., formal or informal) and what areas would you like mentoring in (e.g. research, teaching technology, university logistics[survival skills]). We are also asking for some demographic information to try and determine which group(s) are most in need of a mentoring program.

    This is a short survey and should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete. We would greatly appreciate your assistance as we try to develop a program that is faculty driven to meet the needs of faculty and ultimately help them to be successful in their careers.

    Thank you,

    Mentoring Subcommittee of the Faculty Development and Leadership Committee
