One in a three-workshop series on faculty professional development featuring Kerry Ann Rockquemore, president and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity.

Target audience: pre-tenure faculty

Do you have a reliable and strong network of mentors?
Are you struggling to cultivate mentoring relationships?
Do you know the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
Are you moving to a new stage of your career and wondering how to find new mentors and sponsors that are appropriate to the next level?


Traditional ideas about mentoring often leave faculty feeling that something is missing in their professional development. In this workshop, Rockquemore challenges the conventional wisdom about faculty mentoring and presents a new framework to help you re-imagine how mentoring works.

Participants will map their current mentoring network, identify areas of need that are not being met, and create a plan to expand their existing mentoring network.
