On Monday, April 24th from 9:00AM – 10:30AM the Brown Center will host a National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD) webinar titled, “Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support, and Accountability.”
This webinar will be hosted by NCFDD certified facilitator, Angelique Davis, JD, Professor of Political Science, Seattle University. The workshop is designed to 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. An alternative framework for mentoring is proposed that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community, and accountability. The workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty. This is a great opportunity, especially for Department Chairs in departments that are currently hiring new colleagues, to consider mentoring from a different perspective.
