Faculty need a variety of mentors throughout their career, including formal mentors. Per the Faculty Handbook, departments or colleges should maintain formal mentoring protocols at least for assistant professors. Formal mentoring is more important than ever during this time when many of us are working from home and don’t have easy access to our colleagues, chairs, or mentors.
To support formal mentors and mentees and to encourage dialogue about mentoring, UD ADVANCE is sending out new mentoring materials 1-2 times per semester via an electronic newsletter.
- The first featured resource is a collection of discussion points about 2- and 4-year peer reviews.
- Other UD ADVANCE mentoring resources can be found on their website.
If you are interested in receiving additional resources developed by faculty, for faculty, please subscribe to the UD ADVANCE Institute mailing list.
