How to be an Effective Faculty Peer Member

Faculty peer mentoring is proven to be beneficial for both mentors and mentees. It can foster new collegial relationships, develop research and teaching skills, improve work-life balance, and create opportunities to meet faculty from other departments or fields. However, it is not easy to build effective faculty mentorship without proper guidelines and appropriate structures that set clear, professional boundaries and accomplish concrete goals.

Please join Sarah Lyon, Associate Dean of Faculty, and Karen Petrone, Director of the Cooperative for the Humanities and Social Sciences, for a workshop that will offer tips and provide resources and strategies to help interested faculty be effective faculty peer mentors.
