Invitation to Faculty Connections
New Faculty Invitation
As the number of "new" colleagues become more clear, a call goes out to a smaller number of potential mentors.
As the summer comes to an end, I get a more accurate count of the number of "new" faculty colleagues that will be attending the Faculty Connections fall program. ("New" means brand new full-time or part-time faculty (within 3 years) wanting a fuller integration into the entire faculty)
We have a need for more established faculty mentors to mentor these new colleagues, which is why I'm contacting you. Is this something you would be interested in? Attendance at the full two day seminar is optional, though I think you would find it valuable and you receive a stipend of $300. Mentors do need to attend at least one of the tow (tow is better) lunches to meet the mentee the first time.
Mentors and mentees receive another stipend of $300, for the time commitment of meeting with the faculty partner at least two times per term, for the entire year. You will be invited join our our quarterly diners and roundtables. In addition, you make a valuable contribution to creating a more lively and connected faculty at Lane.
If you are interested, I'll send you more information about the two-day program.
Thanks for considering this request.
