Faculty Mentoring: Shaping a Program
Faurer, Judson; Sutton, Cynthia; Worster, Larry
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n2 p151-154 2014
A well developed mentoring program should not be just considered another faculty activity but rather a significant program that can define a preeminent academic institution. A Faculty Learning Community (FLC) at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) was charged with determining whether the needs of new faculty members and the institution were being addressed in a manner that would optimize the productivity, acclimation, and professional enhancement of those new faculty members who would eventually be the foundation of the institution's future. The FLC conducted a year-long study and an extensive survey in order to provide the administration with findings, suggestions, and recommendations for shaping a faculty mentoring program for the future.
