LAS Teaching Academy: Junior Faculty Mentoring Program

Home | Programs | Current Workshops | Past Workshops | Teaching Examples | People | Teaching Awards | Giving

New junior faculty members are paired with mentors from outside their home departments who share a common research interest or whose disciplines are related. Chosen from LAS's most accomplished teachers, these mentors provide helpful advice to their new colleagues on topics such as time management, working effectively with teaching assistants, and intervening appropriately when students experience academic problems or personal crises.
