Our Center seeks to create a mentorship program to support faculty over the course of their career, particularly those new in their positions. A committee of eight to ten Center faculty (county educators, regional educators and specialists) representing diverse viewpoints is forming to help create this program. Consider joining!
What will the committee do?
The committee will work with Betsy Wieland to determine program outcomes, framework, implementation, and evaluation.
- Assist new employees in learning about available resources.
- Prepare participating faculty for the annual performance evaluation and promotion processes.
- Help participating faculty to identify and develop professional skills.
The University and central Extension have on-boarding programs, and our Center's program will supplement those programs with Center-specific information.
Why form this program?
Results from the Center-wide survey completed last July suggest the need for more support for Center faculty, particularly those new in their positions.
Please contact Betsy Wieland to indicate your interest, to suggest someone for the committee, or to ask questions.
