Rethinking Mentoring — Live stream session hosted by Lawrence University
January 19, 2017 @ 12:00 am CST
- Thursday, January 19, 2017
- 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. CST
- Presenter: Mindi Thompson, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Counseling Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
This session is designed to start a new type of discussion about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs. We propose an alternative framework for mentoring that focuses on needs assessment and shifts the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members toward building a broad network of support, community and accountability. The workshop concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented and mid-career faculty.

If you are local to Appleton and plan to attend in person, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org before January 12, 2017.
This 90 minute Rethinking Mentoring session also advances the goals of the Undergraduate and Faculty Fellows Program for a Diverse Professoriate. Please plan to register for this program that will be live streamed from Lawrence University, and follow along from your office or home. Watch Professor Thompson introduce a new framework for mentoring and best practices that will better equip you to meet the needs of pre-tenure and mid-career faculty from a wider variety of backgrounds.
