CFDE pilots mentoring program for faculty

Emory Report | Oct. 24, 2013

A mentorship program is a new initiative being piloted by the Center for Faculty Development and Excellence.  

Utilizing peer mentoring groups and facilitated workshops, the CFDE Pilot Mentorship Program is designed to enhance the development of its mentees. This pilot program will run from January to May 2014.   

The program uses a group mentoring relationship with peers, facilitated by a senior faculty member focusing on informal meetings and networking as well as more formal professional development opportunities.  

Sign up by Wednesday, Oct. 30.  Candidates eligible to be mentees are any junior faculty member, below associate professor level. See the CFDE website to download an application.  

A time commitment of two hours per month for the six-month program term and attendance at all CFDE Mentorship Program development activities are expected.

All applicants will be notified via email by Nov. 25 regarding the status of their application. Senior faculty, peer groups and mentees will be selected and matched based on the information provided in this application, along with their professional goals and interest areas.  

Email applications to Deb Houry at dhoury@emory.edu or fax the forms to CFDE at 404-727-5284.
