Women and Underrepresented Minority Junior Faculty Mentoring Program

Research has shown that mentoring can play an effective role in the retention of underrepresented minority and women faculty, but they are much less likely than their than their male counterparts to have a mentor. To address this concern, the Office of the Provost hosts a two mentoring programs for underrepresented minority and women junior faculty. These programs are intended to provide: “less-experienced individuals with support, counsel, friendship and constructive example in order for them to succeed in their careers.”  These programs are accessible to full time tenure track and full time non-tenure track faculty.  Pairings occur early in the fall semester and additional pairing can be made upon request in the spring. If you would like to act as a mentor or participate as a mentee please contact Joseph Butler at jbutler2@luc.edu.
