TEACHING ACADEMY TO PRESENT MENTORING PROGRAM FOR NEW FACULTY

The New Mexico State University Teaching Academy will present a team mentoring program session from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Sept. 21 and 22 in Milton Hall Room 50.

The program is designed to help new faculty progress professionally by getting the information they need and by establishing enduring relationships with peers and with a mentor. Team mentoring will reduce isolation and increase connection by building a true cohort of protégés and helping them connect with some of the most supportive faculty across campus.

By spring, each protégé will invite one faculty member to serve as a mentor. During the spring, this mentoring relationship will include discussions over five coffees after exchanges of syllabi, classroom visits, research papers, research agendas and annual performance evaluations.

The successful participant will earn 20 hours of participation credit and a sustaining membership in the NMSU Teaching Academy.
