All faculty members need mentoring. Ideally, your unit will offer mentoring across rank.

  • Assistant Professors (most commonly targeted for tenure)
  • Clinical/NTT Faculty (professional development)
  • Associate Professors (key to ensuring smooth progression to Full)
  • Associate/Full Professors (progressing into leadership positions)

Members of groups that are underrepresented in your field – by gender, race/ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, first-generation status, religion, ability status, etc. – are least likely to receive mentoring and career advice. Mentoring programs ensure that all faculty members are able to access mentoring support.
