Mentoring programs will be offered to faculty at the assistant and the associate levels. Mentoring will be expanded beyond one individual to a team of mentors, who will participate in a rigorous training program and will be involved with their mentees throughout the academic year in monthly lunches and workshops, on topics such as vita building and promotion strategies. In addition, mentors will gather once per semester to discuss mentoring issues and challenges.
