Steps Taken

Since the 2016 survey, a number of steps have been taken to enhance mentor training, and access to mentors. These include:

  • Creation of the Center for Mentoring to support professional excellence by encouraging faculty to learn how to be effective mentors and mentees.
  • Launch of the Mentoring Academy, with almost 30 faculty facilitators trained by the National Research Mentoring Network “Train the Trainer” program.
  • Mentorship initiatives across the university including mentorship programs for new faculty, as well ongoing career coaching.
  • Development of Institutional Mentoring Program Across a CommuniTy of Color (IMPACT) program to provide mentorship for faculty of color. Deans and regional campus presidents nominate faculty for the program every other fall.
  • Introduction of Women IN Academic Leadership (WIN-AL) to introduce tenured and appointment-stream mid-career women faculty to leadership training and opportunities to participate in structured peer mentoring.
  • Membership arranged for all faculty to the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), a nationally recognized, organization that provides career development and mentoring resources for faculty including peer mentoring across institutions.
