2013-14 Workshops

The Faculty Mentor Program (FMP) is proud to announce for its third year that the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work will be joining the program, in addition to the Colleges of Arts & Sciences and Engineering & Computing. The FMP will be partnering with the Division of Research to bring new workshops and speakers on topics ranging from grantwriting and research to publishing and summer planning, as well as the popular networking lunches at the Faculty Club on October 9, 2013 and January 14, 2014.

The well-received University of Michigan CRLT (Center for Research on Learning and Teaching) Theatre group will return again in Spring 2014 with a brand new performance called No Offense. The performance centers on the personal and professional dynamics that occur in a lab setting, and the behaviors that can negatively affect faculty and students, in particular the behaviors that might undermine the success of women in the STEM fields and what is at stake for all.

A variety of mentoring workshops and events were held over the course of the 2011-13 academic years to assist mentor pairs in achieving a successful relationship. Mentees (new assistant professors) were matched with mentors (established associate or full professors) from different departments who shared research interests or disciplinary demands.

Workshop materials, activities and strategies were derived from academic research on faculty mentoring from successful faculty mentor programs at other universities, including UCLA and University of Michigan. Many of these materials can be found under the Resources tab on this website.
