Faculty Mentoring Resources

Faculty Mentoring Central

Faculty Mentoring Central has links to forms and resources related to mentoring for mentees, mentors, department heads and deans as well as general mentoring support. All forms and resources can be downloaded as one pdf booklet called the Faculty Mentoring Guide.


Mentor-the-Pack is a software-based tool that can easily match mentees to mentors based on their needs and expertise.  Faculty sign up in the system as mentors, mentees or both, indicating their expertise as mentors and mentoring needs as mentees.  The system them provides mentees with a list of mentors whose expertise most closely matches their needs.  Mentees then contact the mentor who has the option whether or not to accept the mentor invitation.  This vibrant software system includes professional development for mentees and mentors and can accommodate flash or one-time mentoring needs, longer term one-on-one mentoring relationships, and group mentoring.
