Mentoring Programs

Team Mentoring for Faculty New to NMSU

The Team Mentoring program is designed to help faculty new to NMSU (protégés) progress professionally by getting the information you 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 you connect with some of the most supportive faculty across campus.

In the fall semester, protégés meet regularly with one of the peer mentoring teams led by criminal justice professor and Teaching Academy director, Tara Gray. Protégés will also read a book, Advice for New Faculty Members, by Robert Boice. And, protégés meet with three senior faculty that you choose with help from Tara.

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

One-on-One Faculty Mentoring Program

The One-on-One Faculty Mentoring Program is a peer mentoring program for faculty and academic administrators. The program promotes professional development by connecting mentees with others who can advise, coach and guide them, as well as help them understand the NMSU context.

The program aims to provide both mentors and mentees with the chance to feel more connected to NMSU by this person-to-person commitment and to develop a network among the larger group in the program.
