  • Faculty Mentoring

    Mentoring is a centuries old method for assisting the personal development and encouragement of others. It is an interpersonal connection between two individuals, requiring specific, intentional action by both persons. The use of a faculty mentoring agreement provides a formalized structure for senior to junior faculty sharing of wisdom and experience.
