Mentoring offers a vital contribution to a successful academic career, particularly for women and faculty of color. The most common form of mentoring has been a “traditional model,” which is defined by a one-on-one relationship between an experienced faculty member who guides the career development of an early career faculty member. Recent literature, however, has indicated the emergence of new, more flexible approaches to mentoring in which faculty build a network of “multiple mentors” who can address a variety of career competencies.
In this interactive session for faculty, participants will identify potential roadblocks to success in an academic career; explore both traditional and emerging models of mentoring; “map” their own mentoring networks; and discuss best practices in mentoring, including how to be your own best mentor.

In a 2001 book chapter, I wrote "the ease with which e-mentoring programs can be developed may belie the planning, administration, and resources required to make them successful." The same holds for faculty mentoring programs.
In this workshop for administrators and department chairs, I'll draw on my experiences as director of faculty and graduate student mentoring programs and as the mentoring specialist for MentorNet to address what it takes to develop an effective faculty mentoring program.
Learn how individuals at your institution have succeeded through mentoring.
