NCFDD Workshop: Re-Thinking Mentoring

Join the Institute for Humanities Research and National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) for “Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support and Accountability.”

This virtual workshop led by Dr. Carlita Favero from the NCFDD is designed for faculty in mentoring and leadership roles at the university. It will start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community and accountability.

This event will include a 90-minute workshop with a 30-minute Q&A session. The workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty.

NCFDD virtual campus workshops are designed to address core dilemmas facing tenured and tenure-track faculty, postdoctoral fellows and advanced graduate students by teaching concrete, empirically-tested strategies for success. Offered virtually to accommodate participants at home or on campus, these workshops not only provide an opportunity to learn and reflect on our core training, but they also serve as community-building opportunities.

Please note: Registration closes one week before the event date.
