Faculty Mentoring Program

Overview:

The College of Engineering & Computing (COE) is developing a Faculty Mentoring Program designed to provide support and guidance for new Assistant Professors and for existing faculty who intend to increase their research activities and/or prepare a promotion dossier. Further details will be provided when they are available.

 

Goals of the Faculty Mentoring Program:

  • Promote a culture which encourages new faculty to develop a focused, externally funded research program
  • Provide new faculty with expectations on the relative balance between teaching, research and service activities
  • Transmit lessons-learned, experience, suggestions, and guidance from senior faculty to new faculty to reduce the learning curve of being a new professor
  • Inform new faculty of promotion requirements, expectations, and guidelines
  • Bolster camaraderie, collaboration and friendships both within and outside the COE
