Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support, and Accountability

This workshop is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community, and accountability. The virtual workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pretenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty. This session will run from 2-4 p.m.

This workshop is for faculty with tenure who are mentoring pre-tenure faculty
