Academic Faculty Mentoring Program

Purpose

The purpose of the Faculty Mentoring Program is to enable faculty to achieve high levels of success through mentoring as UNLV endeavors to attain a Carnegie Foundation designation of "Research University/Very High" (RU/VH).

Goals

Our goals are:

  • to provide the resources, information and support through mentoring for faculty in their professional endeavors while at UNLV;
  • to offer centralized services, such as mentoring groups and workshops as professional development opportunities;
  • to provide faculty networking opportunities and relationship building with colleagues in a variety of disciplines from across the campus;
  • to support departments/colleges as they establish and/or enhance their own mentoring systems relevant in their disciplines;
  • Not to dictate a one-size-fits-all, campus-wide model for mentoring; rather to provide a networked approach to mentoring.
