A National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Workshop
This event is free and open to all WSU faculty.

Dr. Rosemarie A. Roberts
Connecticut College

The Workshop

This workshop is designed for faculty 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. Learn about an alternative framework for mentoring 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.

Participants will learn:

  • An alternative framework for mentoring focused on needs assessment
  • To work towards providing faculty at different stages of career development with meaningful mentoring relationships and experiences
  • Differences in mentoring needs between pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty
  • To provide effective mentoring for under-represented faculty
