The Faculty Mentoring Program
The purpose of the Faculty Mentoring Program at Eastern is to support new faculty members by providing them with the option of having a mentor. The mentors assist faculty in their transition to the University and provide a support system throughout the academic year. Mentoring relationships enhance the success of the new faculty members as teachers, researchers, and members of the university community and provide mentors with new ideas and insights.
The Center assigns mentors to new faculty members. The CEE arranges for social gatherings and luncheon/breakfast meetings that offer the opportunity to gain practical knowledge essential to effective use of University services, political understanding, and discussion of ideas and current research pertaining to instructional effectiveness.
Workshops for New Faculty
Workshops will be given during the fall semester on a variety of topics that are aimed to help new faculty understand policies and procedures at ECSU. In addition, there also are Teaching Excellence Seminars, Wednesday Seminars and the Research and Creativity Forum events for faculty to share their research and other interests.
