Pacific's Faculty Mentoring Program

Nov 14, 2019

Have you heard about the multiple mentoring program we’re starting? Are you an early-career faculty member interested in connecting with colleagues and exchanging ideas around teaching, research, or professional development, or gaining a deeper understanding of Pacific’s culture? Or are you an experienced Pacific faculty member who has ideas to share? If so, consider applying to the Pacific Faculty Mentoring Program!

Our mentoring program will allow early-career faculty to draw from the varied strengths and experience of three different mentors and experienced faculty to get to know and exchange ideas with three newer faculty members. Such structured mentoring programs have been shown to nurture social networks and promote professional development and satisfaction for faculty at all levels.

Mentors and mentees will gather for a half-day workshop facilitated by CTL staff on January 8 to discuss goals and schedule mentoring lunches, which will happen throughout the spring semester. Everyone will meet a total of three times (with a different mentor/mentee each time) for lunch in the River Room (sponsored by the CTL). We will have one mid-semester check-in and gather for another mini-retreat on May 11 to debrief about, reflect on, and assess the mentoring pilot.

Interested? You can read more about the program and apply to be a mentor or mentee here.
