Faculty mentoring can be thought of as providing support in a spectrum of areas, from the most prominent ones of scholarly publishing, teaching and career advancement to other important aspects of our profession such as student advising and mentoring, departmental citizenship and leadership, navigation of workplace dynamics, and challenges specific to women or faculty of color. Structures for faculty mentoring include peer mentoring, group mentoring, one-on-one mentoring, and developing a network of mentors.
A selection of articles and essays that the Working Group on Faculty Mentoring read are shared through this Blackboard organization with content areas organized by topic. A summary of the results of the Bowdoin Questionnaire on Faculty Mentoring, along with presentations and resources shared at specific meetings or workshops are also included.
We hope this collection of faculty mentoring resources continues to grow. If you have a favorite article to share or a faculty mentoring practice that works well in your department, then please send it to Dharni Vasudevan.
All Bowdoin faculty have access to the Faculty Mentoring Resources Blackboard organization.
