Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support, and Accountability

This event will start a campus-wide dialogue about mentoring by describing the common problems that pre-tenure and post-tenure faculty members experience and why traditional mentoring programs fail to meet those needs.  Joy Gaston Gayles, Ph.D., professor of higher education, University Faculty Scholar at North Carolina State University, and workshop facilitator for the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity (NCFDD), will provide a keynote address on shifting the idea of mentoring from a relationship between two faculty members towards building a broad network of support, community, and accountability. The event concludes with a presentation of best practices in mentoring pre-tenure, under-represented, and mid-career faculty.
