How Do You Mentor Faculty Women? Georgia Tech Mentoring Program for Faculty Advancement (Case Study 1)

Faculty mentoring programs help junior faculty to acclimate and promote relationships that can cover a broad range of topics. These programs enhance career commitment and self-confidence in women. Successful programs initiate mentor pairings early for new faculty and formally facilitate the relationship until the mentor-protégé bond is established. In a proactive attempt to facilitate faculty advancement, Georgia Tech created a formal mentor program for tenured and tenure-track faculty that has three core components: an online, interactive career-planning tool; intra-departmental mentor pairings; and cross-college workshops to discuss topics that apply to all university faculty.
