Mentoring is a semi-formal, long-term relationship where an experienced faculty member (mentor) provides guidance to a less experienced colleague (mentee) on broader career development, academic navigation, network building, and general career progression. Unlike coaching, which is task-specific, mentoring focuses on overall career growth, work-life balance, and fostering a supportive professional network. Responding to faculty preferences from our climate survey, our Faculty Mentoring Program now offers career mentoring. Eight experienced faculty mentors have dedicated time to serve in this capacity. While participation is voluntary, it is strongly encouraged as it provides more in-depth mentoring compared to our Career Development Committees (CDCs). Meetings between mentors and mentees are expected at least every other month, with more frequent interactions encouraged.
