The Office of the Provost supports a formal mentoring program for untenured members of the faculty.
This collaborative mentoring program consists of small groups of faculty (“mentoring clusters”) that meet roughly once a month to discuss a spectrum of issues relevant to their professional development at Lafayette. The membership of each cluster is diverse and the orientation of this program is toward supporting faculty members in areas that are outside of their departmental and programmatic homes. Each cluster has two senior faculty members who will help facilitate the group. The senior members do not come from the same department as any untenured member of a mentoring cluster, and they are not current members of the Promotion, Tenure, and Review Committee.
Anyone interested in this program should contact Dean of the Faculty Robin Rinehart for additional information.
